Danger Zone! 5 Signs Of Gum Disease

dental payment plans Brandon FLAt Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS in the Tampa, FL area, we take our patients’ oral health very seriously; it is part of our ongoing effort to provide the highest quality cosmetic and implant dentistry possible.

Here is some vital news if you care about your dental health too: periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a principal cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is connected to heart disease. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat if it is found in the early stages.

Here are some of the main warning signs you should be looking for:

  1. Gums that bleed frequently
  2. Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
  4. Gums that are loosening from the teeth
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

Hopefully, you are not noticing any of these symptoms. Besides not brushing and flossing regularly, other factors that put you at risk for gum disease, include smoking, diabetes, genetic pre-disposition, certain medications, and stress. And if you aren’t taking care of your teeth properly, plaque will likely build up on your teeth and turn into tartar that brushing can’t remove. If it isn’t removed, then gingivitis and periodontitis will probably become a problem. And remember, brushing alone is not adequate—make sure you floss daily. Regular check-ups with your dentist is another vital weapon in the fight against gum disease.

At Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS in the Tampa, FL area, our commitment to service begins with our our pride in providing the highest quality of cosmetic and implant dentistry. We consider caring for our patients an honor and want them to have a healthy and attractive smile. Our practice offers Invisalign, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, teeth whitening among a host of other cosmetic and general dentistry services. Call us today to schedule an appointment and to see if a smile makeover is right for you.

Gum Disease And Tooth Loss

treatment for bleeding gums Brandon FL

Do you know that the most common cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news is that gum disease is treatable at Five Star Dental Care in Valrico.

Regular dental check-ups are essential, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for:

  1. Gums that bleed frequently
  2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly
  4. Receding gums
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
  6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, talk to us right away.

Since plaque causes gum disease, removing it with regular brushing and flossing is the key to healthy gums. Most dental health professionals, including the team at Five Star Dental, recommend brushing and flossing twice a day.

If you experience any of the symptoms of gum disease, don’t despair. At Five Star Dental in Valrico we treat gum disease, even in advanced cases. We also offer dental implants, and a wide range of other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
