Periodontal Disease Self-Evaluation

Use the following questions to see if you may have some of the signs and symptoms indicative of progressive periodontal disease:

  • ○ Do your gums bleed when you floss or brush your teeth?
    ○ Are your gums red, tender or swollen?
    ○ Is pus visible when you press on your gums?
    ○ Do your teeth appear to be getting longer?
    ○ Is your gum line uneven when you smile?
    ○ Are the roots of your teeth exposed and sensitive to hot or cold?
    ○ Can you wiggle one or more of your teeth with your tongue or fingers?
    ○ Are there spaces between your teeth where there were none before?
    ○ Has there been a change in how you bite?
    ○ Has there been a change in how your partial denture(s) fit(s)?
    ○ Do you have bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth?
    ○ Is your mouth often dry or burning?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may have some form of gum disease.
