(If you notice any of the following signs please call our Baton Rouge dentistry and make an appointment with a hygienist immediately.)

  • Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth
  • Gums are red, swollen or tender
  • Pus between teeth and gums when gums are pressed
  • Permanent teeth are loose or separating
  • Change in the way your teeth fit when biting
  • Any changes in fit of partial dentures
  • Persistent bad breath

It is possible that the bacteria involved in gum disease somehow manage to migrate to other parts of the body and do damage there. It can affect the heart, brain and other organs in the body. Modern medicine is connecting this disorder to a variety of underlying physical problems.
