Bleeding Gum, Loose Teeth, Gum Infection, Swollen Gum, Gingivitis
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum that may progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports the teeth. The least severe stage is gingivitis and the most severe stage is perio- or advanced periodontitis. If you have any following symptoms, such as easily bleeding, red swollen or tender gums, loose teeth or visible pus around the teeth and gums, you are more recommended to visit our dentist. Usually bacteria cause gum disease. If plaque that is built up over or on the gums and teeth is not removed it can harden and turn into tartar (calculus). Brushing or flossing cannot remove tartar. In order to prevent this from happening, regular 6 month check-up and clean will help protect and improve your oral health.
