Knowing the Signs of Gum Disease [video]

Bacteria love to live in your mouth. When you brush, you are helping to get rid of it and a sticky substance it forms called plaque. Sometimes, the plaque hardens into tartar and becomes impossible for you to remove at home. When this stuff builds up around and under the gumline, it can lead to gum disease. Signs may include bleeding, swelling, and tenderness. At Thomas J. Feder, DDS PC, we will carefully clean the bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your teeth and underneath the gumline.

It may be due to the fact that many people who require the treatment are already in severe pain because of the infection raging inside their mouth. Or perhaps it has to do with how ...
