Do you want to keep your smile healthy and strong? If so, you probably already know that brushing and flossing your teeth are extremely vital steps that you should be taking. You may have also heard that bleeding gums are normal while you’re cleaning your teeth, but would you be surprised to hear that this isn’t actually accurate? Bleeding gums might actually be symptoms of several issues, such as gum disease.
You see, many individual who have gum disease might not recognize it. This is partially because different stages of gum disease and the early stages are fairly difficult to recognize. The first stage is commonly known as gingivitis, which includes problems such as red and irritated gums. If you identify either of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as you can because gingivitis may become more severe if it isn’t addressed quickly.
However, there are also several options you can do to avoid getting gum disease and gingivitis. Gum disease might actually be caused by inadequate oral hygiene. You might be able to avoid this issue by brushing and flossing your pearly whites thoroughly. If your gum disease is more serious, we may be able to reverse the issue with a more thorough deep cleaning.
