Is it possible to have gum disease without bleeding? I’m worried I have it but my gums don’t bleed after brushing or flossing.

My lower front teeth are shifting and may have receding gums. I used to have a brace and I think the teeth are going back to where they were. Could this be gum disease?

Photo of my bottom teeth - gums slightly redder than usual as I’ve just brushed and have been poking around to see if everything is stable

Good day

For an evaluation of gum disease, you should see your dentist to probe around the teeth and check the level of attached gingiva. Crowding of lower teeth could lead to certain areas having recession. Did you have a lower retainer wire placed or were you given retainers to wear?
