Are bleeding gums bad?
The video below describes the early stages of gum disease. If you have gingivitis we have great news for you….if we treat you immediately we will be able to reverse the disease and save your teeth.
Are bleeding gums bad? If your gums bleed, it is usually a sign of mouth infection, mouth bacteria and mouth inflammation. Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease in your mouth. Dental plaque and dental calculus can build up on your teeth and just under your gums. Without proper home care and proper professional dental cleaning, dental plaque buildup and gum disease can lead to bone loss, or periodontal disease.
Tooth brushing with the best toothpaste and flossing with dental floss daily can help prevent gingivitis. But only regular dental cleanings can truly help you keep your teeth by controlling the bacteria in your mouth.

We utilize the Zila Piezo Platinum Scaler with chlorhexidine , fluoride and sterile water to gently remove the dental plaque and dental calculus build up.
