Signs of Gum Disease
You may not realize you have significant gum disease until the later stages of this condition, but there are a few subtle signs to look for before it gets too uncomfortable. You may notice more bad breath than usual that is not helped with antibacterial mouthwash. Your gums may also be more sensitive and bleed while brushing or flossing. As the disease progresses, your teeth may be more sensitive as well, and chewing may become painful. Finally, if you notice your gum line beginning to recede, this is a classic sign of gum disease.
