Watch for These Signs and Symptoms
There are signs and symptoms to watch for if you suspect that your gums are infected and need to be treated by our professionals. Watch for any pain in the mouth, specifically around the gum line. The gums might also be tender and swollen. They might be painful to the touch and bleed when you brush them. Chewing might be painful to do and your teeth might have a sensitive feeling when you eat, drink or chew anything. Your teeth might also be loose if the infection has gotten really bad. Bad breath can also be a symptom, though this can be due to other underlying dental causes.
Usually symptoms are noticed before they become too bad. Whenever smaller symptoms are noted, it is important to speak with our professionals regarding the best care plan. Taking care of the infection can help you keep your natural teeth and have healthier, better feeling gums overall.
