Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Carrollton

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital for proper dental health. However, some dental patients 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 dentist and 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.

Hi, I’m Dr. William Shattuck of The Addison Dentist in Addison. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many important goals I have for my patients. Along with ideal dental health, I also seek to give my patients the sensational smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.

Some effective procedures include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening, inlays/onlays, and tooth implants. If you want to correct several unattractive features in your smile, we can design a custom smile transformation that includes a combination of these services. It is not an exaggeration to say that modern cosmetic dentistry performed with competence truly works miracles with your smile!
