Symptoms of Gum Disease
posted: Jan. 17, 2012.
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a silent disease, meaning that symptoms usually do not arise until the condition is very advanced. Some warning signs of gum disease include the following:
Red, swollen gums
Gums that are receding or pulling back from the teeth
Pus between the gums and teeth
If you have any of these symptoms, see a periodontist for a periodontal evaluation.
