dangers of bleeding gums

The Hidden Dangers of Bleeding Gums

One of the most common signs of gingivitis involves bleeding around the teeth and gums. If left unchecked, a significant amount of damage can occur. This is why it is important to see a professional at the first signs of trouble. Here are three possible treatments which may be offered:

  • Lasers can be used to remove diseased gum tissue.
  • A graft to treat receding gums.
  • Antibiotics to treat infection.

“While your dentist will conduct a deep cleaning to help resolve your gum disease, additional treatment measures may be needed.”
