When thinking of oral health, most people only consider their teeth, yet almost half of all adults experience some form of gum disease! When gum disease is untreated, it can cause many problems with your oral health, such as gum recession, infections, and tooth loss! Our gums are an essential part of oral health, and we need to pay attention to them. Below are the 5 common signs of gum disease:

  1. Bleeding when flossing & brushing
  2. Receding gum line
  3. Loose teeth
  4. Swelling or redness
  5. Abscess in gums
