The ligaments, bone, and gums around the teeth form the foundation for your teeth. All these structures are also referred to as the periodontium. When your periodontium is not healthy, it puts the foundation of your teeth at great risk.
Signs of Unhealthy Periodontium Include:
- Gums that are red and bleed easily
- Persistent bad breath
- Gums that are pulled away from the tooth
- Loose teeth
- Changes in the position or bite of the teeth
