Gum disease is a dangerous and serious dental issue that can completely destroy your smile if you let it, which is why it’s best to catch the disease at the early stages of development so you can eliminate the issue immediately. However, in order to do so, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the signs that are related to periodontal disease, which are:

-Gums that bleed while you brush your teeth
-Tender, red, or swollen gums
-Bad breath that won’t go away or a constant bad taste in your mouth
-Receding gums, which means that the gums are moving away from your teeth, exposing your tooth roots
-The formation of deep pockets between your teeth and gums
-Teeth that are shifting or have become loose
-The change in the way your jaws fit together when you bite down

If you notice one or more of these signs, it’s best to call Professional Dental & Implant Center at (212) 579-0552 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Yakov Royzman & Karina Zaygermakher. However, sometimes there are no visible symptoms when you are a victim of gum disease, so please make sure to keep up with your routine dental cleanings and checkups every six months. We look forward to helping you!
