Gingivitis Develops Without Pain- Oral Health| Dr. Ben Wang


Gum disease is said to affect anywhere from 50-95% of adults in the U.S. depending on which statistic you find. In its infancy, gum disease is totally painless. The process of the gums becoming infected, inflamed, or even just slightly swollen can be something you don’t even notice in the midst of everything else going on in your life, but gum disease has severe consequences if you do not get it treated properly.

An infection in your tooth can also start out as painless. Once you feel the pain, the infection is often moderate or severe, or it is to the point of spreading beyond the single tooth it started in. Most people remember feeling a bit of pressure in the tooth where the infection started, but not pain, so they dismissed what was going on. This is not the right approach to take.

If you have not been going to see your dentist every six months like you should, then today is the day to make that change. Contact our office and schedule a checkup to make sure you do not have something going on in your mouth that could turn into a problem. That one simple phone call could be the one that saves your mouth from a long time of pain.
