Early Signs of Gum Disease

Gum Disease Columbus

Gum disease, or periodontitis, is a condition which can be reversed with help from your dentist if detected in its early stages. Left untreated, however, it can have more serious impacts on dental health. This condition is frequently asymptomatic in its early stages. However, there are some warning signs of gum disease which you should look for and call your dentist if you find.

Swelling, redness, or tenderness of the gums or other soft tissues may indicate inflammation, a sign of gum disease. You may experience bleeding when you bite into hard foods or when you brush or floss your teeth. Gum disease may cause your gums to recede, exposing more of your teeth. Individual teeth may become loose or even threaten to detach from the gums altogether. Puss may form at the gum line and sores may appear inside the mouth. The alignment of your bite may be affected. Your dentures may not fit properly.

If you experience any of the above symptoms, you should consult your dentist serving Columbus, Ohio right away. Here at Oak Creek Dental Care, our dentists are committed to helping you safeguard the health of your gums with periodontal disease treatment. Call us at (614) 882-5525 to schedule an appointment.
