Are you suffering from gum disease? Gum disease is a common, yet severe oral health condition that arises when your gums are infected. Although it can lead to numerous ailments, including eventual tooth loss, there are multiple signs and symptoms that arise indicating its presence. This includes:

– Bad breath symptoms
– Heightened tooth separation, including loose or wobbly teeth, and teeth that are splitting away from each other
– The presence of pus or sores in your gums
– Indications that your gums are pulling back away from your teeth, which can often be seen as teeth looking longer than normal or teeth with exposed roots
– An increase in the frequency of bleeding gums
– An increase in inflammation or swelling of your gums including an increase in tooth sensitivity related to tenderness
