Signs of Periodontal Disease

A change in the color, size or shape of the gums is often the first indicator of periodontal disease. However, it is important to note that symptoms may not be noticeable until the disease is in the advanced stage.

Signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Tender, swollen gums
  • Bleeding
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Gum abscess
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Painful chewing

Periodontal disease is much easier to treat when it is caught early. A periodontal examination is highly recommended for anyone who exhibits one or more signs of periodontal disease.

Contact us today to schedule an oral health consultation with Dr. Dehni. We’ll be happy to explain how we can help achieve a healthy, attractive smile.
