If you are not taking proper care of your teeth and happen to be over the age of 30, it is likely you may already have gum disease. Plaque can build up on your teeth and the surrounding tissues, creating an ideal environment for infection, leading to receding gum lines and periodontal disease (aka gum disease).
In actuality, even those who consistently brush their teeth daily are not completely immune. The best defense is to visit your dentist regularly. Believe it or not, gum disease is pretty common. You might not even notice when it takes root because it can be painless. The longer it goes undetected the more likely the chance of it progressing. So, it is best to catch it early and get the proper treatment right away.
Dr. Daniela Zambon recommends that you be on-the-lookout for these signs of gum disease:
– Retreating gum line
– Bad breath that lingers.
– Sensitive teeth that hurt when cold or hot.
– Gums that easily bleed.
– Loose teeth.
– Gums that are tender and swollen.
– A change in your bite.
– A change in the fitting of your dentures.
– Pain when chewing.
