Here is some important news for Palm Beach Gardens residents: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a major cause of tooth loss among adults. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.
So, what should Palm Beach, Jupiter, and Juno Beach dental patients be looking for?
1. Gums that bleed very easily
2. Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
3. Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
4. Gums that are pulling away from the teeth
5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
Hopefully, you are not experiencing any of these things. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not enough – make sure you floss daily.
Regular check-ups with your Jupiter, West Palm Beach, or Palm Beach area dentist are another essential weapon in the fight against gum disease.
