Gum disease is the most under-diagnosed disease affecting the teeth. The primary reasons is that like high blood pressure, often there are no symptoms. Gum disease can still be present when pain isn't.
Some of the subtle symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums when brushing and flossing, loose teeth, and receding gums.
Gum disease can be divided in two categories: the first is inflammation of the gums around the teeth (gingivitis) and the second is a loss of the bone which supports the teeth most often accompanied by inflammation of the gums.
At Making You Smile we are committed to prevention of gum disease through comprehensive dental exam and diagnosis, patient education and thorough treatment and prevention plan.
