Dental Arts Group SIGNS TO LOOK FOR An estimated 65 million Americans have some form of gum disease, which leaves them vulnerable to infection and tooth loss. Worse yet, many people are ignoring signs of gum disease that might otherwise lead them to effective treatment before their problems grow worse and more dif cult to treat. It is important to recognize common symptoms of gum disease, which include spitting blood after brushing and ossing. This is a sign of the mildest form of gum dis- ease, called gingivitis, which can be treated rather easily. However, symptoms such as wiggly teeth and receding gums may be indications that gum disease has progressed to more severe periodontitis, which warrants immediate attention to prevent both tooth and bone loss. Avoiding gum disease and achieving optimal dental hygiene success are not all that dif cult. Almost everyone can accomplish both with a modest amount of time invested daily. Keeping up with home dental care as well as scheduling periodic cleanings and wellness exams are two important steps toward accomplishing the goal of a healthy mouth.
