Signs You Might Need An Appointment With One of Our Periodontists

Posted on 10/25/2021 by JP Dental & Implant Center
Signs You Might Need An Appointment With One of Our PeriodontistsA periodontist is a dental professional in everything related to gum disease. That definition includes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of these diseases. The principal difference separating a dentist and a periodontist is that the last one will study three more years to achieve the necessary skills to perform gum procedures.

Now, lots of people have early gum disease symptoms without even noticing. However, our regular dentists can treat these symptoms when they are not severe. When the disease has complications, you might need an orthodontist. Here are some signs you need to schedule a consultation right now.

What Are The Most Common Signs And Symptoms?

People usually ignore swollen gums. Maybe you have not noticed, but if your gums look red or they bleed while you brush your teeth or when you floss, it can be an early sign you need to see one of our orthodontists. It is essential to treat this kind of sign early to avoid further complications.

Another sign is if you feel changes in your bite. For example, you may feel different when you chew or when you talk. As periodontists, we can help you discover the causes behind any changes you might have. Another obvious sign is to feel discomfort around your gums, and it could be a symptom of a severe problem that may require treatment.

Still, not every symptom is that noticeable at first. Some others, like your teeth looking longer or bigger, are a sign of gum recession, and it does not mean your teeth are growing. It is crucial to see one of our orthodontists if you have any of these signs or symptoms. You can always contact us to know more about early signs of gum recession or if you need to schedule an appointment.
