Here is important news for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is associated with heart disease. At Sven Bone Dentistry in Bozeman, gum disease is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.
What warning signs should you be looking for?
- Gums that bleed often
- Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
- Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
- Gums that are loosening from the teeth
- A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
Hopefully, you are not noticing any of these symptoms. Even if you aren’t, keep brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis. We recommend twice each day. This is the best way to maintain dental health and prevent gum disease.
Regular check-ups are also important.
