Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

Categories: Dental Health

bleeding gums East Lake

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for optimal dental health. However, some dental patients in the East Lake, East Lake, and Clearwater area 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 after your cleaning, it isn’t really a problem. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to return to your Trinity dentist and discuss the possibility of periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, occurs when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also experience bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.
