To prevent gum disease and other oral health problems, it's imperative to schedule regular dental cleanings and exams — generally once or twice a year. In the meantime, contact Dr. Reece if you notice any signs or symptoms that could suggest oral health problems, such as:
•Red, tender or swollen gums •Gums that bleed when you brush or floss •Gums that begin pulling away from your teeth •Loose permanent teeth •Changes in the way your top and bottom teeth align with each other •Unusual sensitivity to hot and cold •Persistent bad breath or an unusual taste in your mouth
Remember, early detection and treatment of problems with your gums, teeth and mouth can help ensure a lifetime of good oral health.
