Could I have periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease can affect anyone. If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have periodontal disease:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Swollen or red gums
  • Gums that bleed or are tender
  • Sensitivity
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Pain while chewing

Periodontal disease leads to tooth loss and is linked to a number of serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Our dental hygienists are well-educated in periodontal disease prevention and are happy to help you improve your brushing and flossing technique.
