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)
