Do you have constant gum pain or notice that your gums easily bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? If so, you may have gingivitis, the earliest form of gum disease, or periodontal disease.
What is gum disease? Gum disease is an infection and inflammation of the gums caused by a buildup of plaque, tartar, and bacteria on your teeth. As it worsens, it can begin to affect the jawbone supporting your teeth, leading to your teeth shifting, loosening, or even falling out!
Gum disease symptoms include: bleeding gums while brushing or flossing; swollen, red, or tender gums; receding gum line/teeth appearing longer; loose or separating teeth; sensitive teeth; pain when chewing; partial dentures no longer fitting correctly; and persistent bad breath.
