Oral Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore: Swollen Gums

Have you noticed that your gums look a little more red or puffy lately? Even if you believe you have healthy teeth and gums, swollen gums require a trip to the dentist.

Why do my gums bleed?

The best thing you can do to protect your teeth is to visit your dentist regularly. At Lake Orion Family Dentistry, Dr. Brad Greenfield will screen your mouth for signs of decay and infection at every dental checkup and cleaning you have at his dental office. If caught in the early stages, gum disease and other oral health problems can be treated effectively, and Dr. Greenfield will work with you through every step of your treatment.

General Checkups Promote Healthy Living

Do you know what age people should start visiting the dentist regularly?

Everyone over the age of four should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice each year. Our gentle hygienists will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults. The hygienists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease.

While we are equipped and more than happy to help you beat this serious disease, we would rather help you achieve and maintain quality oral health so that you never have to worry about developing gum disease and other oral health conditions.
