Regular dental check-ups and cleanings at the Winston-Salem Dental Group are essential for ideal dental health. However, some of our patients worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning.
Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a day or two, you don’t need to be concerned. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to let us check for the possibility of gum disease.
Gum disease develops when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also see bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.
Gum disease is among the leading causes of tooth loss in American adults. If there’s even the possibility of a problem, we want to know about it. When it’s diagnosed early on, it is treatable.
