Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Regular check-ups and cleanings at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA are essential for good dental health. But some people tend to have gums that bleed after a thorough cleaning, causing them concern. Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a couple days after your dental cleaning, don't worry about it. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you should be checked for the possibility of gum disease. Gum disease arises when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also see bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth. It is a progressive condition and a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It is also treatable, but as with most conditions, the earlier it is diagnosed and the treatment begins, the better. We treat gum disease at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA. Patients from throughout Modesto, Patterson, and Oakdale know they can trust us with their dental health. They also come to our practice for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
