Symptoms of Gum Disease

When meeting with your dentist to discuss the status of your oral health, they will be able to tell you if you are experiencing early or later stages of gum disease. However, if you want to know before you ever step foot into our office, here are some of the most common symptoms that can occur:

  • Bleeding when brushing or flossing
  • Gums are tender to the touch or appear red
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Teeth appear elongated because of gum recession
  • Teeth become loose
  • Bad breath or halitosis

Scaling & Root Planing

When gum disease is detected, our team may recommend scaling and root planing, otherwise known as deep cleaning. This two-part process involves clearing away stubborn tartar on your teeth as well as below the gumline (scaling) before smoothing your tooth roots to encourage reattachment and minimize future reinfection (root planing). Highly effective and safe to perform, this treatment will help to improve your gum health in the future.
