Gum Disease Symptoms
At A-Dental Center, we provide a large variety of general and cosmetic dentistry solutions for new and existing patients, including the diagnosis, treatment, and continued evaluation for gum disease symptoms.
Gum disease, often-referred to as periodontal disease, can have a dramatic negative effect on the smile. It can cause the loss of gum tissue, bone, and teeth. When patients do not practice proper oral health care, they may be putting themselves at an increased risk for gum disease and other problems such as tooth decay.
It is important for patients in the Hollywood, CA area to be able to recognize the symptoms of gum disease to know when it is time to see a quality dental professional for help. Dr. Edmond can educate individuals on the signs of initial stages of gum disease. The first stage, known as gingivitis, is reversible, so it is essential for patients to get assistance as soon as possible when symptoms are noticed. The noticeable signs include:
- Bleeding gum when brushing and flossing

- Persistent bad breath
