Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

Categories: Oral Health

bleeding gums Russellville

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for optimal oral health. However, some dental patients worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning.

Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a day or two after your cleaning, it isn’t really a problem. But, if the bleeding and tenderness lasts longer, you really need to return to your Jefferson City dentist and discuss the possibility of gum disease.

Gum disease develops when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also notice bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, I’m Dr. Justin Johnson of Jefferson City Dental Care in Jefferson City. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many vital goals I have for my patients. Along with ideal dental health, I also seek to give my patients the sensational smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.

Some effective procedures include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening, inlays/onlays, and tooth implants. If you want to correct several unattractive features in your smile, we can design a custom cosmetic dental smile makeover that includes a combination of these services. It is not an exaggeration to say that modern cosmetic dentistry performed with expertise truly works miracles with your smile!
