#Gingivitis can be difficult for a non-professional to recognize. Many individuals do not recognize the early warning
signs, such as swollen gums and bleeding, as a symptom of #gumdisease.
Early warning signs include:
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender Gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Gums receding or pulling away from the teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Changes in the way teeth come together when biting or chewing
