treatment for bleeding gums Provo

Do you know the most common cause of tooth loss among Salt Lake City adults?

The answer is gum disease. While this may be startling to Salt Lake City, Moab, and Provo residents, there is a bright side:

Gum disease is easy to treat if it is detected in the early stages.

Regular check-ups with your Anytown dentist are essential, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

1. Gums that bleed very easily

2. Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed

3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly

4. Gums that are pulling away from the teeth

5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, talk to your dentist today. Avoiding these problems is ideal, but brushing isn’t enough. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.
