Does It Bleed While You Brush Your Teeth?
That’s a point of concern for your oral health. Bleeding gums is the first sign of a gum disease.
Tartar and plaque, build up behind the teeth and gums slowly, leading to gum diseases. Due to this accumulation, gum irritation and infection set in, and finally, due to lack of strength in the bone, teeth fall off.
- Noticing any yellow or brown discoloration or stains around your teeth?
- Bad smell from your mouth?
It’s a beginning of a gum disease. Start by a dental check up and periodic scaling.
If you have an unhealthy mouth, you are at the risks for developing serious systemic illnesses
What Causes Bleeding Gums?
Well, a lot of reasons lead to bleeding gums. A few maybe by a combination of lack of oral hygiene, smoking, stress, genetics, infections.
However, this can be avoided by maintaining regular brushing and flossing routines.
Regular visits to Park dental, where Scaling and Root planing is done according to the severity, by a Periodontist.
But, once the plaque or germs reaches bone level, it gets severe. Significant bone loss might be noticed in the radiographic evaluation. When that happens, bacteria get into your bone and blood stream and can become a systematic problem, not just an oral problem.
Our Periodontist might recommend Flap surgeries in such cases. Either Laser or Conventional Flap surgery is advised to the patient. It is rather painless procedure, so one need not be worried about it. Laser is rather blood-less and pain-less, so the dentists and patients opt for this procedure for their flap surgeries. As recommended by Healthline sources, it is an advanced technology to repair any gum disease.

How To Tell If Your Gums Are Unhealthy
A simple test is to vigorously floss between all of your teeth. Is there any blood on the floss? If so, you have gingivitis at least, and possibly more progressive gum disease. Healthy gums do not bleed when you clean your teeth with brushing or flossing. If your teeth and gums bleed when you brush and floss, you are at risk for serious illness.
