There are many dental problems in the world today, but one of the most serious and dangerous problems of all is gum disease. Gum disease is a condition that slowly takes over your smile and gradually destroys it each day. It generally develops when you do not attend your dental checkups and cleanings. Visiting our Steven A. Beuligmann, DDS Inc dental team is the only way to completely prevent and fight the disease. To help you know how to identify the disease, we ask you to look out for the following warning signs:

· Swollen, red, or tender gums
· Gums that bleed easily, especially when you brush your teeth or eat food
· Gums that pull away from the teeth and create pockets
· Persistent bad breath or a constant bad taste in the mouth
· Permanent teeth that are loose or shifting out of place
· A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite down
· A change in the way your dentures fit in your mouth

If you would like more information about gum disease, how it forms, and how to prevent it, please remember that you can always call 760.729.5964 and talk to our caring and informative dental team. We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Steven A. Beuligmann if you ever experience any of the mentioned symptoms. If you come to our office when you first see the signs, there is a high chance that we can save your smile. We look forward to helping you!
