|Do you pay attention to the warning signs that your mouth provides you when something is wrong? Don't feel bad if you don't - many of us are guilty of getting so busy that we just go through the motions day after day, not really paying attention to our oral health. The problem is, however, that you are putting your teeth and even your physical health at risk if you continue to ignore what your gums are trying to tell you. If you have any of the following signs, it is time to figure out what is going on with your mouth and get the help that you need.
As you can see, there are many ways that your gums could be telling you that something is wrong. If you suddenly feel like your gums have been telling you these things for a while, it is time to come in for an evaluation. Sometimes our patients are lucky enough to find out that it is simply hormonal issues they are dealing with or that they just need to brush a little lighter, but other times, we find that they do in fact have gum disease and need subsequent treatment. Wouldn't you rather know what is going on with your mouth so that you can minimize the damages that occur as a result of having gum disease? If gum disease goes untreated, you could be at risk for eventual tooth loss - isn't it worth finding out if you have the early signs of this disease today?
If you are worried about your risks for gum disease, please call our office today to make an appointment. We will help you determine your risk factors and what you can do to minimize your chances of having gum disease.
