Swollen, painful gums are one of the earliest signs of gum disease. While unpleasant, it is also a good warning sign that your gums need treatment. Pay attention to it. If you do not treat your gums at an early stage, your gum disease can reach an untreatable stage known as periodontitis. At that point, you are potentially facing tooth loss and bone recession. But the complications do not end there. According to extensive research, the bacteria behind gum disease can also lead to systemic problems as serious as heart disease and strokes.
