Signs of Gum Disease

Smile Workshop is a family dental office with eight locations throughout Texas. Are you worried that you or your children have signs of gum disease? Have a dentist diagnose your problem by scheduling an appointment at your local Smile Workshop.

Signs of Gum Disease

–       Loose adult teeth

–       Bad breath that will not go away

–       Change in your bite

–       Gums that regularly bleed

–       Swollen gums

–       Adult teeth that start to separate

If you notice any of these signs, call Smile Workshop. It is much better to see your dentist sooner rather than later when dealing with gum disease. The early form of gum disease is called gingivitis. Gingivitis is no joke, but it can be treated and eventually reversed.

Not doing anything about signs of gum disease will lead to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease causes the loss of tissue and bone that are critical to your dental health.

Causes of Gum Disease

–       Smoking

–       Chewing tobacco

–       Poor oral hygiene

–       Pregnancy

–       Medications
