Gums support your teeth and so the health of your gums is important in maintaining overall oral health, as well as the health of the rest of your body. If your gums exhibit signs of gums disease it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. If neglected, gum disease can cause shifting teeth and eventual tooth loss.
If you notice the following symptoms it is advisable you make an appointment to visit The Practice so we can assess your condition.
- Red, swollen gums
- Inflammation of the gums
- Gums that are sore to touch
- An excessive buildup of tartar that you cannot remove with your toothbrush
