Symptoms of Gum Disease 

The most important thing to know when it comes down to periodontal (gum disease) and the infection is that part of this disease you will not be aware of until the symptoms have advanced. Periodontal disease has an extended association with 22 other life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer and autoimmune diseases primarily due to the inflammatory process caused by a C-Reactive Protein (CRP). Some of these advanced dental symptoms are loose teeth due to supportive bone loss, strong offensive breath odor due to necrotic tissue and uncontrolled bacteria, and swollen tender bleeding gums. So, how do you avoid being a victim of this disease? It’s simple, easily diagnosed, treatable, and part of every exam that Dr. Brittain performs in her Weston Cosmetic and Family Dental Practice. Let us help you create a customized plan back to health and safety!
