Do you ever wonder if there are any steps you should be taking to keep your pearly whites healthy and strong? You’ve probably heard that brushing your teeth is extremely important. While this is true, would you be surprised to hear that your gums shouldn’t bleed when you clean them? If your gums bleed when you clean them, you may be coping with more serious issues.

Did you know that many people who suffer from gum disease don’t realize it? A precursor to gum disease is called gingivitis. The symptoms of this stage include red and irritated gums. If you have either of these symptoms, we suggest scheduling a checkup with us as soon as you can. If you don’t, gingivitis may become gum disease.

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to prevent or to treat gum disease and gingivitis. As you may already know, you might have gum disease if you don’t clean your smile well enough. Cleaning your pearly whites thoroughly might also be enough to help you reverse your gingivitis. If your gum disease is relatively severe, a deep cleaning from our team might be enough to reverse it.
