Early Signs of Gum Disease

Last updated 5 years ago

Unchecked plaque buildup along your gum line can lead to gum disease. The consequences of severe periodontal disease can be permanent, which is why it’s important to recognize the early signs of gum disease and seek professional treatment immediately.

Healthy gum tissue is pink and firm. As gum disease progresses, your gums will appear red and swollen and will be quick to bleed. If you continue to allow plaque to build up, your gums will start receding, and you may notice pain while chewing. Watch this video to learn more about the early signs of gum disease.

Colorado Advanced Dentistry is one of the first facilities in the United States to offer laser gum treatment, a state-of-the-art approach to treating gum disease. Call (720) 420-1103 to schedule your first appointment today.
