First Three Signs of Gum Disease to Look For

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Bryan Neu
Early treatment is the key to stopping the advancement of gum disease before it runs amok in your mouth. But early symptoms can pass off as normal conditions or minor dental issues that are easy to ignore. You might not even feel any pain or discomfort in the beginning. But with early detection, you can nib gum infection simply with good oral care and mouth-friendly habits. Periodontal disease refers to an inflammatory condition that damages supporting bone and gum tissues around the teeth. It's a product of prolonged harmful bacterial activities in the mouth. And as the bacteria continue to thrive in what's an advanced stage of the infection called periodontitis, they can cause more widespread damages. Periodontitis refers to a wide range of symptoms that characterize the advanced stages of gum infection (gingivitis), including cavities and tooth loss. The First Sign of Gum Disease: Plaque Attack The buildup of plaque in the mouth may not cause any pain or discomfort initially. But as it continues to fester, it might begin to irritate the gums, causing swollen, sore, or bleeding gums. Good brushing and flossing habits can go a long way in tackling the disease at this stage, as would abstinence from habits that might exacerbate the issue such as consuming acidic, sugary food, smoking, or drinking alcohol. The Second Sign of Gum Disease: Gum Recession As your gums continue to come under siege, they lose more tissues and cells and their mass shrinks. It only gets worse from then on if nothing is done. The protective tissues are torn apart, exposing the most sensitive parts of the gum and teeth and leading to the third sign. The Third Sign of Gum Infection: Teeth Sensitivity When the most sensitive parts of your teeth and teeth roots become exposed as the infection advances, they get easily irritated by the slightest temperature changes in the mouth. You'll then be feeling sharp, shooting pains in the mouth whenever you consume foods and drinks that are hot, cold, or acidic. But even at this stage, it's still possible to salvage your dentition and restore your oral health. If you're experiencing any of these stages of gum infection, reach out to us today today....
