Gum disease affects millions of Americans. As an inflammation of the gum line, it can lead to serious problems, including swollen and bloody gums. If you believe you’re suffering from gum disease, we recommend visiting Mt. Ogden Dental Clinic for a deep dental cleaning and gum disease treatment.
Gum Disease Symptoms
There are three stages of gum disease- gingivitis, periodontist, and advanced periodontitis. Gingivitis is caused due to a lack of flossing and brushing. In this initial stage, you may experience swollen and bloody gums.. Fortunately gingivitis can be reversed with proper dental health and regular dental checkups. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, which means “inflammation around the tooth.” Gums can begin to recede, forming pockets that are susceptible to infection. As periodontitis advances, tooth loss is often the unfortunate outcome.
