Bleeding gums most likely signifies unhealthy gums. If your gums bleed it is not recommended to stop what you are doing rather than increase it, as it is mainly due to the build up of bacteria under the gums causing inflammation and mild infection. Predominantly this can be limited with flossing and regular hygiene visits. One way to help prevent bleeding gums is to head over to Dimos Dental & Facial Aesthetics to see if you have periodontal disease.
What is Periodontal Disease?
What is periodontal disease? In short, periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and bone, caused by bacteria that live in the mouth. If left untreated, this infection could continue to destroy the bone around the teeth and ultimately further inflame the gum tissue.
