Don’t Let Periodontal Disease Strike Your Smile

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

If your gums are suddenly swollen and sore, you may have periodontal disease. This advanced form of gum disease strikes most adults eventually, but you don’t have to suffer in silence. Discover more about this condition and how to protect you smile.

Causes for Concern

There are many degrees of gum disease, but they are usually all caused by a sticky substance called plaque. If this plaque starts building up on your teeth and it’s not removed with regular cleaning, then it can cause an infection and swelling in your gums. If you don’t seek immediate treatment, it can progress into periodontal disease and do damage to your teeth and gums. Since it’s easiest to treat at an early stage, call an affordable dentist if you notice signs of a possible problem.

Red Flags of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease can strike at any time and in many ways. Some people experience extensive soreness and symptoms, while others have no idea they have gum disease until a dentist discovers it. Please see an affordable dentist as soon as you notice any of these signs:

  • Swelling and redness in gums
  • Gums that bleed while brushing and flossing
  • Gum recession
  • Bad breath
  • Shift in bite alignment
  • Discomfort with dentures
  • Loose teeth

Pointers for Prevention

Many people suffer from gum disease, but you don’t have to be one of them. You can prevent the problem from ever starting by taking care of your smile. Follow these simple steps to keep your smile safe and healthy:

  1. Brush at least twice a day, especially in the morning and evening.
  2. Floss at least once a day.
  3. Choose healthy foods and beverages.
  4. Avoid tobacco.
  5. Get regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist.
