How can I tell if I have gum disease?

Gum disease affects one in two adult Americans, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Early signs of gum disease can be easily missed; bleeding gums, swelling, redness or sensitivity can all be signs of gum disease. Prevention is the best option for gum disease. We recommend dental check-ups twice a year, which is in line with the American Dental Association guidance. As a part of your check-up, we will assess your gum health and may advise visiting the hygienist. If you have concerns in the meantime you can contact the office to arrange an appointment.
