Every day, bacteria are trying to cause problems with your oral health. That includes causing infections that can lead to gum disease.
It’s why you should floss and brush your teeth every day. It’s why you should visit our dentist office in Belleville, IL, for routine cleanings and exams.
And it’s why you should learn gum disease symptoms:
▪︎ Bleeding gums
▪︎ Swollen or red gums
▪︎ Never-ending bad breath
▪︎ Receding gums
▪︎ Sore gums
▪︎ Loose teeth
If you see any of these signs, call our dentist office to schedule a non-surgical gum disease treatment. By acting quickly, you can reverse the disease and avoid many long-term consequences to your oral health.
In the video below, Dr. Michael Smith of the office of Thomas J. Feder, DDS, discusses gum disease and what you can do to fight it.
