Tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease) are the primary causes of adult tooth loss, so it’s important to know the state of your periodontal health. Research has also found a relationship between gum disease and more serious health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you could be at risk for periodontal disease.

  • Red, swollen gums.
  • Gums that bleed easily when you brush or floss.
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
  • Persistent bad breath.
  • Pus between the teeth and gums.
  • Teeth that seem to wobble in their sockets.
