Do You Know The Symptoms of Gum Disease?

Individuals who suffer from periodontal disease often exhibit very obvious symptoms. These may include:

Chronic Bad Breath

Learn More >>

No matter how much you brush or floss, your breath still has a foul odor. This is due to the build-up of bacteria in the periodontal pockets that have begun to form between your teeth and gums. Without treatment, the bacteria build-up will continue and can destroy soft and hard tissues.

Bleeding Gums

Learn More >>

It is not normal for gums to bleed when you brush your teeth or eat your food. If your gums are bleeding on a daily basis, you need to see Dr. Miner to rule out periodontal disease.

Receding Gums

Learn More >>

Have you noticed that you are looking “long in the tooth”? Gum recession is a big indicator of gum disease. Fortunately, intervention can halt the recession, and laser gum surgery can fix any residual problems and restore the gum line to a natural appearance.

Tooth Sensitivity

Is it getting tougher to drink cold liquids or eat hot foods? Your increased sensitivity could be a symptom of gum disease.

Loose Teeth

Learn More >>

When gum disease has advanced, the teeth may begin to loosen due to surrounding bone loss.

Painful Chewing

Teeth and gums that are affected by gum disease can make chewing the foods you love painful and uncomfortable. If you experience pain when chewing, you may have gum disease.
