Gum disease is a sneaky dental problem that tends to take over smiles without people noticing. It can slowly grow and advance in your mouth and threaten your teeth every waking moment. However, there are signs you can look for that lead to gum disease, and we recommend keeping an eye out for those so we can catch the disease at the earliest moment possible. Those signs are:

· Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth or eat
· Gums that are red, swollen, and tender
· Gums that have pulled away from the teeth, creating pockets
· A constant bad taste in your mouth or bad breath
· Loose teeth or teeth that are starting to drift out of place
· An improper bite
· A change in the way your dentures fit

If you experience any of these symptoms, please call (404) 321-4588 as soon as possible and schedule an appointment with Dr. Brett Langston. Our Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta team cares for you and your oral health, and we ask that you come to us right away if you think you might be a victim of gum disease. The sooner you come to us, the higher your chances are of destroying the disease before it destroys your smile. We look forward to helping you!
