Normally, you only need to visit the dentist to ensure good oral health, however, if you think you have signs of a gum disease such as inflammation or bleeding; consult a periodontist immediately. Periodontists begin the diagnosis by checking for the recession in the gum line, the patient’s bite and whether there are any loose teeth. Periodontists determine gum health by placing small probes in the spaces between the teeth and the gum (periodontal pockets). At certain times, X-rays may be required to determine signs of any disease.
