Signs to See a Periodontics Expert

July 20, 2022

Sunrise periodontics experts say that the earlier gum disease is diagnosed, the easier and less expensive it is to treat. If you notice any of the warning symptoms listed below, make an appointment with a periodontist immediately to prevent further damage and maintain a healthy gum line.

Gum Disease Indicators

Loose Teeth

This is a sign of severe periodontitis. If any of your teeth become loose, you must book a periodontal visit as soon as possible to avoid tooth loss.

Temperature Sensitivity

A receding gum line is a gradual process that many people are unaware of for years. If you notice an increase in sensitivity to extremely hot or cold foods and beverages, it’s possible that the recession may have proceeded to the point where the roots of your teeth are exposed and susceptible to infection.

Receding Gums

Gum recession occurs when the gums pull back from the top of the tooth, which is most typically caused by gum disorders like gingivitis and periodontitis. A receding gum line, if left untreated by a periodontist, will display the tooth’s base, leaving it exposed to bacterial infection.
Adult tooth loss arises as a result of advanced stages of recession. A deep periodontal cleaning may be sufficient to reverse the trend if your recession is discovered and treated early enough.

Bleeding Gums

This is an indication that your gum tissues are inflamed and irritated by high plaque buildup. Gum bleeding is interestingly common in the early stage of gum disease and is usually and totally reversible with proper treatment.

Prolonged Breathing Problems

If your foul breath persists despite diligent oral care, it’s time to make an appointment. This concern is commonly known as halitosis. Gum disease is frequently preceded by persistent foul breath.
