Here is some critical news for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a main cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is associated with heart disease. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, if we find it in the early stages.
What warning signs should you be looking for?
- Gums that bleed often
- Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
- Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
- Gums that are loosening from the teeth
- A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
We hope you are not suffering from any of these symptoms. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not adequate—make sure you floss daily.
Regular dental check-ups is another important weapon in the fight against gum disease.
