Dangers & Symptoms of Gum Disease in Torrance, CA

You May Have Gum Disease, and Not Even Know It

Gum disease may be common, but a large number of individuals unknowingly have the destructive oral condition. Pain typically is not a symptom, until the advanced stages, and the bleeding that occurs is considered “normal” by many.

It is never “normal” for the gums to bleed, and ignoring this and other gum disease symptoms only sets the stage for additional oral health complications along with serious systemic health concerns.

The sooner you take control of your oral health, the less risk you have of experiencing devastating health consequences.
