Do you know that the most common cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news is that we can treat gum disease at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, if it is detected in the early stages.
Regular check-ups are vital, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.
1. Gums that bleed often
2. Gums that are 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. Detached gums
5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
6. Loose or separating teeth
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, talk to us today. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.
