Danger Zone! Five Signs of Gum Disease

The older you are, the more at risk you are of coming down with gum disease. But even among young and middle-age adults, gum disease is a primary cause of tooth loss. Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium reminds you that an ounce of prevention of worth a pound of cure. Good oral hygiene can dramatically reduce your chances of getting gum disease.

Warning signs of gum disease include:

  • Gums that bleed often
  • Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  • Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
  • Gums that are loosening from the teeth
  • A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

The main cause of gum disease is plaque, so taking good care of your teeth is essential. By itself, brushing is not enough. Make sure you floss every day. Twice a day is better. Your routine should also include a checkup and cleaning by dental professionals every six months.

At Steven W. Haywood in Timonium, we offer gum disease treatment to those patients who need it. We practice general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
