Gum Problems Directory

Gum problems range from swollen gums to oral cancer. Symptoms of gum disease (gingivitis) may include bleeding, swelling, and pain. These symptoms may also be the result of simply brushing your teeth too hard. If gum disease is found to be the problem, treatments may include scaling and root planing, flap surgery, soft tissue grafts, and more. Gum disease can be serious, so any gum problems should be evaluated by a dental professional.
