Our Best Dentist in Peoria IL Discusses Importance of Addressing Gum Disease

As we're all known to do, you spent a few too many minutes looking at online medical or dental related articles today, and now you are self-diagnosing. Even though this process can sometimes go nowhere but into a darker and darker, often meaningless place, the best dentist in Peoria IL does think the question “Do I have gum disease?” is a valuable one you could be asking yourself.


Thanks to this helpful online list, you can self-identify some of the signs of one of the most common diseases, not only in dentistry, but the world over.


  • Do your gums bleed easily while brushing or flossing? Even by just touching them?
  • Are the gums tender, red or swollen? Maybe even receding?
  • What about your teeth: do they feel unusually loose?


If the answer to any of those questions, or any of the questions listed in the article linked above, is “yes”- you should call our best dentist in Peoria IL right away to schedule an appointment and allow us to examine your gums for you. We can be reached at (309) 688-7321.
