Frequently, gingival disease does not cause pain or discomfort. Next, you can read more details about how the dentist can detect the signs of the disease and treat it before it gets worse.
Dentists are specialists in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. During a review, they examine your mouth, gums and teeth to detect any problems. It can often be the first defense against gingival disease.
Unlike tooth sensitivity or discomfort, gingival disease often does not hurt or cause discomfort, so even if you detect some of the signs, such as redness, inflammation, bleeding or gum retraction, you may not seek help as quickly as you should. However, if you do not treat gingival disease in its first phase, it can develop until the second, known as periodontitis, which is much more serious and can cause the loss of teeth.
HOW CAN GINGIVITIS BE DETECTED IN A DENTAL REVIEW?
During the first part of a dental checkup your dentist will create what we know as a "medical history" that helps the dentist get an idea of your possible risk factors. I may ask you questions like:
Have you experienced any symptoms of gingival disease such as bleeding or gum inflammation?
Have you previously received any treatment for gingival disease?
Do you smoke or have a history of gingival disease in the family?
How often do you brush your teeth?
