Keeping Your Gums Healthy

With Our Skilled Dentist in San Jose

Healthy gums are the essential foundation for a healthy mouth. When you have gums that are healthy and taken care of, they support your teeth and allow them to function properly. However, if your gums are unhealthy, it can cause jaw problems, sensitivity, and even decay. These symptoms can easily be prevented by keeping your gums healthy and treating any signs of gum disease (periodontal disease) early on. Dr. Berna Sanayei can help you and your family achieve and maintain healthy gums.

What Are the Signs of Healthy & Unhealthy Gums?

Many times, when people have unhealthy gums, they don't know it because they do not have dental training. However, by knowing the signs of both healthy gums and unhealthy gums, you can know what to look out for. One of the most common signs of unhealthy gums is bleeding, especially during brushing or flossing. If your gums bleed when you are brushing your teeth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible to discuss testing or treatment.

The signs of healthy gums include the following:

  • No signs of swelling
  • No tenderness
  • No bleeding during flossing or brushing
  • Stippling
  • Pink in color
