Signs of Periodontal Diseases

The signs of periodontal diseases are subtle. A “pink” toothbrush can be a warning of damage caused by bleeding from the tissues. Persistent bad breath and taste are other warning signs. The gums may appear to be red, swollen and feel tender. The roots of the teeth can loosen and separate, resulting in a bite change. Also, a change in the fit of partial denture may be noticed. Pain and abscesses tend to occur in the final stages of the disease, usually when it is too late to save the tooth.

If you are having any of these problems, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Brar or Dr. Manhas for a complete periodontal evaluation without a referral.
