Gum Disease – Oral Health is Important!

Taking care of your oral hygiene is something that everyone should feel is important. You only have one set of teeth — make them last! Gum Disease is caused by a bacteria between the teeth and a build up of plaque. Your gums become inflamed and you may notice bleeding when you brush your teeth. Though you may have bleeding of the gums, your teeth are still firm and the bone structure is okay during the onset of gum disease. If you don’t take care of your gums, the inner layer of the gum and bone can begin to pull away from your teeth forming pockets. These small spaces collect food and other debris and become infected.

Symptoms of Gum Disease:

  • Gum bleeding during brushing
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Shifting teeth
