  • If your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, you can have the signs of it. If your teeth are getting loose. It can also cause bad breath. Left untreated you can lose your teeth and even get infections and all sorts of other problems. The only way to know if you have it is to see a dentist. The treatment is harsh at first (if it's bad) but in the long run, it's far better that leaving it untreated.

  • I think it is pretty obvious if your gums bleed and any teeth feel loose that you have gum disease/ Nobody should have to tell you that! LOL.. You need to floss every day. Brush after meals. Include lots of vitamin C foods in your diet. Veggies too. Most important, see your Dentist SOON. The Hygenist will probably have to do a deep cleaning and that also helps heal your gums.
