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
