How do I know if I have gum disease?
Any of these symptoms may be a sign of a serious problem which should be checked by a general dentist or dental hygienist or a specialist (called a periodontist). The dentist or dental hygienist can test you for gum disease and may also take x-rays to determine whether there is any bone loss. They may also refer you to a periodontist who are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease and may provide you with treatment options that are not offered by your dentist.
