  2. Gums that are red, swollen, or tender
  3. Persistent bad breath
  4. An itchy sensation around the teeth and gums
  5. Gums that appear to be pulled away from the teeth
  6. Teeth (permanent) that are becoming loose or beginning to drift
  7. Infection or purulence (pus) emitting from between the teeth and gums (especially when they are pressed)
  8. Changes in your bite (ie. does the way your teeth fit together feel different)
