How do you know if you need gum disease treatment?

To know for certain whether or not you need treatment for gum disease, your dental hygienist and dentist will perform a simple exam and take measurements of your gum pockets.

Early Signs Of Gum Disease Include:

  • bad breath – your loved one may tell you about this
  • “off” taste in your mouth
  • pink or red saliva when you brush or floss your teeth

Usually, there is no pain at all in the early stages, so you may not realize you have a problem.

Early treatment is the key to saving teeth. Early treatment is simple, non invasive and comfortable. That’s why it’s important to come in for regular check ups. Catching small dental problems early makes treatment simpler, less costly and offers a higher success rate.

If Left Untreated, The Symptoms Of Gum Disease Worsen, But You May Not Be Aware

Gum Disease is often painless in the early stages, and as it slowly progresses, you may not be aware of symptoms, however the disease will slowly break down healthy gum tissue and connective tissue that keeps your teeth strong and in place.

In advanced cases, bone loss is common as well – and treatment then becomes advanced, and often surgical in nature. Tooth loss is common in advanced cases of gum diseases, as highlighted by this short video showing the progression of gum disease.

Regular checkups and early treatment if a problem arises is the best course of action. Early treatment saves gum tissue, tooth structure and jaw bone, and can prevent dental infections.  Early treatment is relatively simple and comfortable, consisting of a series of “deep cleaning” appointments and sometimes, antibiotics or antimicrobial medicine as well.

 

There is nothing to be embarrassed about.
