What are the Signs of gum disease?

Periodontal disease is usually pain-free (sometimes called ‘the silent dental disease’) and so you may be unaware of it.

Here are some ‘red flags’ symptoms you may notice that should raise concerns

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or using floss /interdental brushes
  • Bad breath
  • Spaces appearing between teeth
  • Loose teeth or teeth moving position in the mouth
  • Receding gums
  • Sensitivity to cold or hot foods and drink

Stages of gum disease

Your BPE score (0-4) or pocket depth is a measure of your gum health and is carried out as part of your routine dental examination. (Scores of 3-4 indicate the presence of more severe gum disease)
