Here is important news for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is associated with heart disease. At Stewart & Hull Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park, gum disease is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.
What warning signs should you look for?
- 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
Even if you aren’t seeing any of these symptoms, keep brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis. We recommend twice each day along with regular dental check-ups in our office. It’s the best way to maintain dental health and prevent gum disease.
