Your gums are the structures that hold your teeth in place inside your mouth. You must take are of these just as much, if not more than your actual teeth. It is imperative you brush regularly and floss in between teeth simply due to the fact that bacteria that grows in those hard to reach places that you don’t bother to clean, or clean improperly causes gum disease. Gum disease can lead to the loss of the entire tooth because the foundation, the gums, have been so deeply infected. You should go to the nearest Baltimore Maryland periodontist office because gum disease is often silent, meaning symptoms may not appear until an advanced stage of the disease. If you have any of the following warning signs, please do not hesitate to see Dr. Collier:

  • Red, swollen or tender gums or other pain in your mouth
  • Bleeding while brushing, flossing, or eating hard food
  • Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, causing the teeth to look longer than before
  • Loose or separating teeth
  • Pus between your gums and teeth
  • Sores in your mouth
  • Persistent bad breath
