Gum makes an important structure in the mouth that support your teeth to the jawbone.
Gum disease can be silent but progresses deadly. Some of the signs of gum disease are;
– bleeding when brushing or flossing
– swollen puffy gum
– bright, red coloured gum as opposed to pink
– bad breath
– loose teeth
Gum disease when minor can be completely reversible but when progressed can cause irreversible severe damage to the jaw bone resulting in loss of teeth and bone melting away. This can cause a concern and pose complexity to the future implant treatment.
