If you have gum disease, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Bleeding after brushing your teeth
- Swollen or red gums
- Bad breath or a foul taste in your mouth
- The appearance of deep pockets between your gums and teeth
- Receding gumline
- Loose teeth
- Changes in your bite or shifting teeth
For people experiencing the above symptoms, it’s vital that you contact your dentist as soon as possible to set up an appointment for an evaluation. Unfortunately, after gum disease has advanced past its earliest stages, it is no longer reversible, but treatment is still essential.
Untreated gum disease may lead to serious health issues, including bone and tooth loss. But at Brimhall Dentistry, we can manage your gum disease to protect your oral health.
Gum Disease Evaluation in St. Paul, MN
Whether you are experiencing gum disease symptoms or not, it’s important to see your dentist regularly to maintain your oral health and prevent gum disease from developing. We urge you to contact our team to set up your next dental cleaning and exam with our experienced dentists, Dr. Nick Schulte and Dr. Meredith Meador-Schulte.
During your exam, we’ll check your gums for signs of gingivitis or gum disease, discuss your oral health needs, and, if necessary, advise you on the best toothbrushing and flossing techniques for your at-home oral hygiene routine.
If we do find signs of gum disease, we’ll recommend appropriate treatment methods at that time.
