Gum Disease Explained
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that can spread to the bone in your jaw that surrounds your teeth. Because you may not experience any pain from gum disease, it’s important to look out for these symptoms:
- Gums that easily bleed while flossing and brushing
- Loose teeth
- Gums that have pulled away from your teeth
- Swelling, redness, and tenderness of the gums
- Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages
- Chronic bad breath
Because gum disease is caused by bacteria in your mouth, you should visit Plainfield, Indiana dentist Dr. Eccles for regular dental cleanings and exams to help prevent it. We can also recommend oral rinses for home use to keep your mouth healthy.
