What are the signs of gum or periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease often causes few symptoms in its early stages and people usually tend to overlook on them. Provo dentists recommend you to come at our Provo, UT dentist office if you are experiencing at least one of the following symptoms:

  • Your gums are red, swollen or bleeding, especially during brushing and flossing. These are often the first and most common signs your gums are under attack from harmful bacteria.
  • Your gums are receding or there are deep pockets between teeth and gums
  • You have chronic bad breath or a sour or unpleasant taste in your mouth. Bacterial buildup and the toxins bacteria produce can cause bad breath or a sour taste that tends to return even after brushing
  • Your teeth are shifting out of their normal alignment or they feel loose
  • You have pain when eating. Once bacteria causes infection around the tooth root, biting down can cause pressures that result in pain in and around the tooth and gum
  • Your teeth are sensitive to extreme temperatures. Likewise, once the root area is involved and gums have receded to expose more of the root, your teeth can become very sensitive to temperature changes
  • You’ve never had an evaluation by a periodontist
  • You’ve noticed changes in your bite pattern. As teeth become loose, they can cause differences in the way your mouth “feels” when biting or chewing
