Having sore, bleeding, red, or inflamed gums sounds like nobody’s idea of a good time. However, these are all symptoms of one of the most common oral conditions called gum disease. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, then you may not even know where to start. Let’s take a closer look at why you should say “enough is enough” to your gum disease.
Does it seem like your gums are sore and painful after you brush or floss your teeth? If so, then it’s definitely time to say enough is enough and come into our Arcadia Dental Arts office for a thorough cleaning. Depending on how severe your gum disease is, we may just be able to get rid of caked on plaque which will help clear your gum line and alleviate your symptoms. If, however, your gum disease is at more advanced stages then we may recommend other treatments.
It Could Get Worse
When you start experiencing these early signs of gum disease, don’t try to “man up” and brush it off as nothing because it could turn into something that’s drastically worse. As previously mentioned, if gum disease is caught in the early stages, it’s easily treated with a thorough cleaning, but if it gets worse, it can lead to gum erosion and even missing teeth.
Gum disease is a real nuisance that can make your everyday life feel a little bit more painful and irritating. Luckily, here at Arcadia Dental Arts, we can work to help you find some relief from your symptoms so that you can live a normal life.
