Unique Signs that you Have Gum Disease

Periodontists Views on Bleeding Gums

If you think that bleeding gums is the only sign you need to watch for when it comes to gum disease, you are wrong. There are several signs that while not as obvious as spitting blood in the sink every time you brush, are just as dangerous. If you exhibit any of these signs, it is imperative that you come in for an appointment as soon as possible to allow us to get a handle on your gum disease.

The Warning Signs of Periodontal Disease

1.  Bad breath - Most people associate bad breath with the food that they ate or the fact that they did not brush their teeth yet. To the contrary, bad breath can be a sign of gum disease. Since inflammation of your gums is caused by bacteria, it makes sense that it would make your breath smell bad. If you are constantly suffering from bad breath and cannot seem to get rid of it, you could be suffering from gum disease.

2.  Shifting teeth - Do your teeth seem "different." Is it as if you woke up one day and your bite just seemed off? This could be a result of advanced gum disease. As the bacteria works on your gums, it also gets down to the bones. Eventually the bones could start absorbing back into your body, causing your teeth to become loose or to shift, making things feel a little different.

3.  Longer teeth - Many people think that longer looking teeth is a natural part of aging, but it is actually a sign of gum disease that needs to be addressed right away.
