Signs of gum disease include swollen, sore or bleeding gums. Gum disease is very common in Milton Keynes and the rest of the UK and most adults experience it at least once.
If you have gum disease (gingivitis), your gums may bleed when you brush your teeth and you may have bad breath.
If gingivitis is not treated, a condition called periodontitis can develop. This affects the tissues that support teeth and hold them in place, which means that teeth can eventually come loose and fall out.
