Regular dental check-ups and cleanings at Decatur Smiles are critical for ideal dental health. However, some dental patients worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning. It could be a symptom of gum disease.
If your gums bleed for a day or two after your appointment, you don’t need to be concerned. But if it lasts longer, you really need to return to our office, and we’ll look into 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.
Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many critical goals we have for our patients at Decatur Smiles. Along with ideal dental health, we also seek to give our patients the remarkable smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
