Benton & Nelson DDS

How will I know if I have gum disease?

We evaluate your gums at every cleaning appointment. Dr. Benton and Dr. Nelson always evaluate their patients for gum disease during their cleaning appointments in their Winston-Salem office. Their entire dental team is trained to evaluate for signs of gum disease.

Other factors that could be signs of gum disease include:

  • Bad breath
  • Chronically bleeding gums
  • Gum recession
  • Mobile or loose teeth
  • Tobacco use
  • Lack of regular dental cleanings
