What can I do about bleeding gums?
Bleeding gums are most commonly a result of brushing too hard or the first stage of gum disease. When there is a lot of plaque below the gums, your body brings more blood to the area to fight the infection. If treated at this early stage, gum disease can be prevented. We can offer tips on proper brushing and flossing techniques, provide regular cleanings and exams and offer periodontal cleanings (deep cleaning below the gumline) to help you prevent gum disease.
