What should my mouth look like on the inside?

Between dental visits check your mouth for warning signs of gum disease and oral cancer.

Warning signs of gum disease may include:
    * puffy, red, sore, shiny or sensitive gums
    * bleeding when you brush or floss
    * bad breath that won’t go away
Warning signs of oral cancer may include:
    * numbness and tingling
    * open sores that don’t go away within a week to 10 days
    * unexplained bleeding
    * lumps or thickening on the bottom or sides of your tongue, cheeks, or roof of your mouth.
If you notice any of these signs, or have any concerns, call your dentist immediately.
