Beautiful, shiny white teeth are not the only sign of a healthy mouth. Like a house, your teeth need a strong foundation, and your gums serve this purpose. Periodontal or Gum Disease is one of the biggest reasons for tooth loss, and you need to pay attention to the warning signs. Some of these include red, swollen gums; bleeding when you brush; receding gums or persistent bad breath. These symptoms can be bothersome enough on there own, but research indicates that ignoring these conditions can lead to other health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
