Do I Have Gingivitis? A Laguna Hills Guide To Gum Disease

Many people feel that because they don’t have any missing teeth and aren’t experiencing pain that they must have a healthy mouth. In many cases, they are right. However, underlying issues can affect your gums before you notice any symptoms.

More often than not, gum disease isn’t discovered until it has advanced. However, with regular dental check-ups and the knowledge of early warning signs, you can be aware of potential problems that could indicate gum disease.

Some early warning signs include:

  • Swollen, red, tender, or painful gums
  • Bleeding of the gums after brushing or flossing, or after consuming hard foods
  • Teeth that appear to look longer or begin to separate from each other and feel loose
  • Bad breath that won’t go away after brushing or rinsing
  • Changes to your bite
  • Mouth sores or oozing between your teeth and gums

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to schedule an appointment with Dr. Löberg of Löberg Professional Dental Corporation. Dr. Löberg can perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are in the early stage of gum disease, called gingivitis. When caught during the gingivitis stage, gum disease can usually be reversed through a professional cleaning, regular check-ups, and improvement in your daily oral hygiene regimen. Once the gingivitis has advanced to full-blown periodontitis, it can be more difficult to manage and can cause other serious health problems.

To ensure that your mouth stays healthy, always brush your teeth at least twice per day and floss frequently to eliminate food particles from your teeth and gums. Habits such as smoking or tobacco use can also lead to gum disease. If you need help quitting, we are happy to give you materials and provide references. Always make sure to keep your bi-annual appointment with Dr. Löberg for professional cleanings.

Dr. Löberg is a passionate and experienced dentist who uses the latest in advanced technology to serve the patients of Laguna Hills. He performs a variety of restorative and cosmetic procedures to enhance the health and appearance of his patients’ smiles. If you think you might be experiencing the early symptoms of gum disease, or if you simply want to schedule a professional exam and cleaning, call our office today.
