When patients come to our office for cleanings, we routinely check their gums by doing a periodontal exam.  During the periodontal exam, we measure the amount of space in between the tooth and the gum. Healthy gums are pink and tight to the surrounding teeth.  If the gums are unhealthy, there is more space between the teeth and the gums.  Unhealthy gums bleed easily and often appear inflamed.
