Have you ever noticed any signs of bleeding while eating? Do you frequently bleed from your mouth when you brush your teeth or floss them? If so, this may be a sign of gum disease. In addition, gum disease may be present if you have any on irregular signs of swelling or inflammation within your gums or a heightened risk of sensitivity with your gum tissue.

If you frequently suffer from bad breath despite numerous treatments being used, or bad breath returns regularly, it could be the result of underlying conditions such as infections with your gum tissues. In addition, gum tissue infections can cause painful chewing sensations when eating. Gum disease is often linked to pus and sores on your gums and teeth as well.
