What Are Symptoms of Gum Disease?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the physical signs that can indicate you have developed gum disease.

You might be wondering about the symptoms of gum disease and how it feels if you have it. In many cases, gum disease doesn’t present noticeable symptoms that you can easily recognize. It’s a bacterial infection that can silently affect your gums and the supporting bone without causing immediate discomfort or visible signs. To elaborate, gum disease can infect your gums, and at first, it may not be visibly apparent. You might not feel any pain or experience any noticeable changes until your teeth start to become loose. Unfortunately, by the time this happens, it may be too late to save those teeth. That’s why it’s crucial to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings. By doing so, we can detect and address gum disease in its early stages, preventing it from progressing and causing tooth loss. Our goal is to ensure you have minimal dental issues in the future. I’m looking forward to meeting you and assisting with your dental care needs. Have a great day.
