Signs of Gum Disease

Periodontal Treatment | Dr Peter Galgut

Ten Signs that you may have gum disease:

  • a red or pink tinge on your toothbrush after brushing your teeth
  •  a taste of blood or other peculiar tastes in your mouth
  •  swollen, bruised or tender areas of gum, especially in between your teeth
  •  blood in your mouth, or on your teeth, especially on awakening
  •  areas around your teeth from which it is difficult or painful to remove food
  •  loosening teeth
  •  teeth changing position or drifting out of alignment
  •  swellings on your gums or any discharges such as pus occurring on or around your gums
  •  increasing sensitivity to temperature change
  •  receding gums


If you have any of these signs, you should consult a periodontist to eliminate this problem
