Remember Early Gum Disease Does Not Hurt

Posted on 9/7/2020 by Classic Smiles
Remember Early Gum Disease Does Not HurtHealth problems that are asymptomatic in their beginning stages can be difficult, if not impossible, for the infected person to detect. This is the case with gum disease as well. Although advanced stages of gum disease have a variety of symptoms ranging from swollen gums to loose teeth, many patients with gum disease will not be aware they have it until it has developed to a more serious or even incurable state. Fortunately, our team is able to diagnose gum disease whether or not symptoms are present.

How Our Team Can Detect Gum Disease

The most common way for our team to detect gum disease is to measure the gaps between teeth and gums. Multiple gaps that are 4 millimeters or more is a strong indicator of gum disease. Gums bleeding during the exam is another sign of gum disease. X-rays can detect bone loss, which occurs in periodontitis as the harmful bacteria eats away at the bone. Our team may also refer patients to a periodontist who can offer additional examinations, diagnoses, and treatment plans.

Signs That It Is Too Late for Early Gum Disease

By the time gum disease manifests its symptoms, it is already in its late stages. Gum disease with symptoms might be periodontitis, which cannot be cured. Signs of gum disease include swollen gums, bleeding gums, tender gums, bad breath, pus between the teeth and gums, loose teeth, pain when chewing, new gaps between teeth, and a receding gumline. Patients experiencing any of these symptoms should contact our office immediately. Even periodontitis, which cannot be cured, can still be treated.

Our team recommends annual checkups for patients in good oral health and biannual checkups for the rest of our patients. If you are overdue for a checkup, contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment.
