Dental Conditions : What Does an Abscess on the Gum Look Like?
23 Ways To Stop Gum Disease
When To See Your Dentist
You can risk more serious periodontal disease and the possible loss of your teeth if you ignore sore, bleeding gums. See your dentist if you notice:
- Gums that bleed during brushing and flossing
- Red, swollen, or tender gums
- Gums that have pulled away from your teeth
- Loose or separating teeth
- A change in your bite
- Your partial dentures fit differently
- Pus pockets between your teeth and gums
Also, if your gums still bleed when you brush your teeth and continue to be sore and swollen despite all your efforts at good oral hygiene, see your dentist again.
