Bleeding, swollen gums with or without bad breath usually indicates an underlying infection which will eventually destroy the jaw bone that hold teeth in their place.

The common misconception is that the person suffering from this thinks he may be brushing or flossing too hard. Sometimes the gums don’t even bleed at all.

Any jaw bone that is lost no matter how little never grows back and is gone forever. The good news is that gum and jawbone infections are totally painless. Unfortunately when pain finally occurs it is too late to do anything about it except extract the affected teeth.  More alarmingly scientific research show a strong link between chronic gum disease and heart disease. Only a dentist or hygienist can assess the extent of the permanent damage done to the gums and jawbone and prevent it from getting worse.
