Why are my gums bleeding?

If your gums are bleeding, it could be a sign of something serious. Bleeding gums are often a sign of periodontal disease, which is a serious gum infection that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

The most common sign of periodontal disease is bleeding gums, which may come in the form of bright red blood or pinkish saliva when brushing or flossing. Other signs of periodontal disease include red, swollen, tender gums; persistent bad breath; receding gums; and loose teeth.

Fortunately, periodontal disease is preventable and treatable. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for professional cleanings. If you already have periodontal disease, your dentist can work with you to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

If you are experiencing bleeding gums, it is important to see your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist can diagnose the cause of the bleeding and recommend the best course of action. Your dentist may also recommend a deep cleaning to remove the plaque and tartar that can contribute to gum disease.

No matter what the cause of your bleeding gums, it is important to take it seriously and seek help from your dentist. Bleeding gums can be a sign of serious gum disease and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
Taking preventive action and visiting your dentist regularly can help you maintain healthy gums and a beautiful smile.

I been coming to Dental Arts for a few years and was a skeptical about returning since my regular hygienist had moved on but my experience was super. I was knowledge right of way as I entered the office, making me feel welcomed. Jannette was down to earth , I feel I like knew her already. She did a fantastic job with the cleaning. The entire team was fantastic.

I can't quite put into words how satisfied I am with my service care at Dental Arts of Pelham. The multi-level excellence demonstrated at this office is unmatched. From the warmth and level of expertise at the front desk to my dental assessment and services, I was very pleased all the way through. Noteworthy to mention is Marline's impeccable service. She was reassuring and knowledgable about my insurance and provided me the ease I needed at the end of my visit. 10/10 recommend this office to anyone who is looking!
