Here is some essential news from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a primary cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is connected to heart disease. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat if it is found in the early stages.
What warning signs should you be looking for?
- Gums that bleed often
- Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
- Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
- Gums that are loosening from the teeth
- A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
We hope you are not suffering from any of these warning signs. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not enough—make sure you floss daily.
Regular check-ups are another weapon in the fight against gum disease.
