Here at Vela Dental Centers Kingsville in Kingsville, Texas, we are happy to provide you with signs and symptoms of gum disease, so you can seek treatment right away to reverse gum disease and achieve a healthier smile. Knowing the symptoms of gum disease can help you find treatment to reverse this condition before you begin losing your teeth and other serious problems can occur.

Signs and symptoms of gum disease include:

-Gums that bleed easily
-Persistent bad breath or bad taste in foods and drinks
-Red, swollen, or tender gums
-Gums that seem to pull away from the teeth
-Permanent teeth that feel loose
-A change in your bite

If you have any of these symptoms, please call our office at 361.592.4373, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Ben Vela & Alan Rodriguez right away. Having good dental care is essential to fighting this disease. There are also cases of gum disease that offer no warning signs or symptoms, which is why having regular dental checkups are vital to keeping up with your oral health.

You can also help yourself and your dentist by giving yourself proper dental hygiene. Brushing away the plaque and bacteria from your mouth daily, while flossing daily, will take strides in fighting against gum disease.

If you have any questions about gum disease, please contact your dentist. Let us lead your smile back to positive oral health.
