If you have chronic, unexplained bad breath or bleeding gums, you may already be suffering from gum disease. By brushing and flossing your teeth you might avoid these complications, but if they are occurring despite your dental hygiene routine, have your gums examined. If we catch it at an early stage (gingivitis), we can reverse gum disease. Untreated, gingivitis can lead to an incurable stage where you develop pockets between your teeth and gums due to bone loss which can lead to tooth loss. This advanced oral infection can affect other systemic health issues that you may have.
