Do You Have Sore Gums?

Categories: Dental Health

Affordable Allen Park Dentistry Every Detroit dentistry patient’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are diligent about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.

Gingivitis is the term for mild gum disease. At Szalai & Szalai DDS, we routinely discover gingivitis in Dearborn patients who are not even aware they have the condition.

The first signs of gingivitis are swollen, sore gums.

It is important for our dental patients to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while and live in the Detroit area, call Szalai & Szalai DDS at 313-928-2323. Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai thoroughly examine teeth and gums and take time to discuss the results and recommendations with each Allen Park dentistry patient.
