Regular check-ups and cleanings at Aspen Dental of Cache Valley are essential for good dental health. But in some people their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning, causing them concern.
Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a couple days after your dental cleaning, don’t worry about it. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you should be checked for 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.
It is a progressive condition and a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It is also treatable, but as with most conditions, the earlier it is diagnosed and the treatment begins, the better.
We treat gum disease at Aspen Dental of Cache Valley. Patients from throughout North Richmond, East Mountains, and South Highway 89 come to use for family and restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
