Warning Signs of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gingivitis is an infection that affects the gums. Gum disease causes the gums to recede and exposes the teeth and attached bone to further damage. The disease often begins as gingivitis and can cause red, swollen, or bleeding gums. As the affliction progresses to periodontal disease your teeth may decay, fall out, or have to be removed. If you have noticed any concerning dental symptoms, schedule an appointment with Dr. Bloom right away—it could save your teeth!

Common Symptoms of Gum Disease:

  • Red, irritated gums that may bleed when brushing or flossing
  • Receding gums that pull away from teeth or produce pus
  • Bad breath that seems consistent
  • Teeth that have loosened from the gums
  • A change in the way your teeth rest when biting
  • A change in the way your partial dentures fit

Maintaining regular appointments with your dentist is very important to preventing periodontal disease. Dr. Bloom and his expert team can provide thorough examinations of your teeth, gums and entire mouth. If your mouth shows early signs of periodontal disease don’t panic! Dr. Bloom will help you find a safe, effective treatment option.

How To Treat Gum Disease Early

Early signs of gum disease may be difficult to find, but that’s where Dr. Bloom can help! During your checkup at Bloom Family Dental, Dr. Bloom will examine your teeth for early signs of gum disease using a periodontal probe to gently measure the spaces between your gums and teeth and check for signs bleeding that could indicate weakened gums. X-rays may also be taken to check the general health and quality of your teeth as well as the bone supporting them. If signs of gum disease are found Dr. Bloom will discuss a treatment plan that is gentle and effective and can help put your mind at ease.

Don’t be worried at the first mention of gum disease! If Dr. Bloom discovers that you have early signs of gum disease or gingivitis, a simple change in the way you brush or floss may be be enough to remove signs or symptoms and get you back to feeling healthy and clean. But in cases where more advanced dental therapy is needed, a process called scaling and root planning can be used to remove the plaque and tartar of each periodontal pocket and allow for gum tissue to reattach to the teeth. This process is also known as periodontal cleaning or deep cleaning and may take a few visits to fully treat the affected area. In some cases medications may be administered to aid in healing and treat any signs of pain.

Although we’ like to think it does, periodontal disease does not go away on its own! Especially if you’ve already been treated for periodontal disease, dentists may recommend more frequent checkups to ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and protected. Periodontal disease can start small but can also lead to more serious health conditions, so if it’s been six months or longer since your last to the dentist, you’ll want to make an appointment with Dr. Bloom today.
