When gums begin to swell, bleed and become sensitive, this is the beginning of periodontal disease, a serious infection of the gums. If ignored, it can lead to bigger problems like tooth decay or loss. Daily brushing and flossing and regular checkups from the dentist can help prevent this.
However, if you are experiencing symptoms like sensitive, bleeding and swollen gums; receding gums; sensitive or loose teeth; or chronic bad breath, you may have periodontal disease and should seek help.
