Signs of gum disease:

  • Gums that bleed after brushing or flossing.
  • Red and swollen gums.
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth.
  • Loose teeth.
  • Receding gums or wearing away of the teeth.
  • Gums that bleed easily

Because Gingivitis symptoms are easy to ignore people often do just that. Many gingivitis patients don't even know they have Gingivitis.
