Gum disease is a concerning gum tissue infection that can weaken the bones beneath your teeth and result in tooth loss. Infection in the gums is typically caused by the germs or bacteria found in plaque buildup, causing irritation in gums and increasing your risk of many dental health problems.
There are many signs of gum disease that show you should speak to a dental professional about identifying and treating your condition, and these include:
• Chronic bad breath
• Gums pulling away from the teeth or teeth that look longer
• Loosened teeth
• Pus oozing from the gums
• Bleeding gums following brushing or flossing
If you notice any potential symptoms of gum disease, we invite you to come speak with Dr. Jack Schwarcz and our team right away so that we can address the gum disease before it results in a serious health concern.
