Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Manhattan

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are critical for ideal dental 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 dentist and discuss the possibility of gum disease.

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

Hi, I’m Dr. Frederick Hecht of Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht in Staten Island. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many important goals I have for my patients. Along with ideal dental health, I also seek to give my patients the stunning smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.
