Why Have Your Gums Started to Bleed?
Do your gums bleed on occasion such as immediately after you brush your teeth? If so, this could be an early sign of gum disease and you should see your dentist. Let’s look at three key takeaway points to keep in mind.
Gum disease is a sign of a bacterial infection which can travel through blood vessels in the body, causing them to become inflamed — leading to heart disease and other medical conditions.
– If left untreated, it can progress to gingivitis, a more severe form which can lead to loose teeth.
– A dentist can provide you with a host of effective treatment options if caught at an early stage.
= Regular dental exams and cleanings are very effective at keeping gum disease under control.
