Why do my gums bleed?
If your gums bleed every time you perform your oral hygiene, you may be experiencing a sign of gum disease. Gum disease is a progressive oral health concern that affects the health and function of your teeth and gums. Healthy gums are crucial to maintaining a healthy smile.
If left untreated, gum disease can lead to system health issues, tooth loss, and jaw bone deterioration. The goal is to treat gum disease in its earliest stage to prevent the development of a more complex dental problem. Preventive dental care and a healthy oral hygiene routine can help prevent the development of gum disease.
Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh offers a full range of preventive dental care and periodontal therapy services for patients dealing with mild to advanced stages of gum disease. Visit Congressional Dental Care in Rockville, MD to learn more about our dentistry services.
Treating Bleeding Gums
Bleeding gums is one of the most common signs of gum disease. As the bacteria spread to the gum line, deep pockets begin to form, causing inflammation, swelling, and bleeding gums. Eventually, the gums begin to recede from the gum line and may lead to shifting teeth and eventually tooth loss.
Rockville dentist Dr. Sarkarzadeh can screen for gum disease during your preventive dental care visit. We recommend patients visit our Rockville dental office twice a year for a full comprehensive exam and professional dental cleaning.
If gum disease is found during your preventive care exam, Dr. Sarkarzadeh will work with you to create a custom designed periodontal therapy treatment plan. A personalized treatment may require anti-bacterial rinses, a scaling and root planing, or advanced periodontal therapy with a local specialist. Our dental care team will work with you one on one to restore your gum and overall health.
