Oral health is extremely important to maintain and without proper care, gum disease can take a turn for the worse. When gum disease forms, bacteria begin to overpopulate in the mouth.
The bacteria along with plaque that is not removed, causes inflammation and irritation of the gums. During this time, your gums become tender to the touch. Generally, this is the time where patients do not want to seek dental attention because of the pain.
The next stage of your gum disease after periodontitis sets in is receding gums, which has the effect of your gums disappearing. This causes more of your teeth to be visible and allows nerves to become exposed. If these are symptoms you are experiencing, along with bad breath, you should see your dentist for oral care. When your nerves come exposed, more pain generally sets in, which is why it is imperative to see your doctor.
