Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Blue Ash

Regular check-ups and cleanings at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Montgomery OH 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.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Montgomery OH we treat gum disease. Patients from throughout Cincinnati, Blue Ash, and Kenwood know they can trust us with their dental health. They also come to our practice for family dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
