It’s easy to take your gums for granted, but the truth is that you cannot have healthy teeth without healthy gums. Many times, people have gum infection—and they are completely unaware of it. But gum infection is an insidious disease that often is present without any signs or symptoms.
At LN Dental, we prioritise your gum health, providing periodontal treatment when patients need it.
1. Signs You Might Have Gum Disease
One of the most common signs of gum disease is bleeding gums when you brush or floss your teeth. If you have signs and symptoms beyond bleeding gums, this might mean your gum disease has progressed to a more advanced state. If you notice any of the following, it’s a good idea to contact your dentist straightaway because you might need periodontal treatment immediately:
- Pus that has formed between your gums and teeth
- Bad breath that never seems to go away, regardless of brushing and mouthwash
- Teeth that are starting to look longer (because gums are pulling away)
- Teeth that feel loose
2. Keeping Your Gums Healthy
The only way to know for sure that your gums are healthy is by visiting your dentist regularly. It’s crucial to have professional dental cleans to remove tartar that has built up along the gum line; this tartar is impossible to remove with dental floss and a toothbrush. Your hygienist has special tools to remove this substance.
