Danger Zone! 5 Signs Of Gum Disease

dental payment plans ChamplinHere is some essential news for anyone who cares about their dental health: periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a main cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is linked to heart disease. At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, this problem is easy to treat if it is discovered in the early stages.

What warning signs should you be looking for?

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

We hope you are not experiencing any of these symptoms. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not sufficient—make sure you floss daily.

Regular check-ups are another essential weapon in the fight against gum disease. At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove we offer OralDNA, a fast and pain-free test for the early detection of gum disease. We also offer family dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
