If you noticed a swelling, redness or frequent bleeding gums, it may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. See your dentist for re-evaluation.

You need to speak with the dentist and or hygienist and address the following, what is my home care regimen and how can it be improved? Can I see a copy of my periodontal charting and explain what the numbers mean to me. Why do you think I have red swollen gingiva and what are the remedies to have this addressed.
