Do You Have Sore Gums?

Affordable La Mesa Dentistry Every San Diego dentistry patient’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are diligent about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.

Gingivitis is the term for the mild gum disease. At Jeff Gray DDS, we routinely discover gingivitis in San Diego clients who are not even aware they have the condition.

The first signs of gingivitis are swollen, sore gums.

It is important for our San Diego dental patients to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while and live in the San Diego area, call Jeff Gray DDS at 619-337-7700. Dr. Jeff Gray thoroughly exams teeth and gums and takes time to discuss the results and recommendations with each San Diego dentistry patient.
