You take really good care of your teeth but lately you have bee noticing bleeding from your gums when you brush. What is causing this and is it bad?
Bleeding gum diseases is a common occurrence that is caused by inadequate removal of plaque. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while to have a deep clean then you may be missing plaque that is under the gums at the base of the teeth. So even if you brush everyday you could still have plaque under the gums. This plaque contains germs that eat away at the base of healthy gum tissue and can cause your gum line to recede over time.
So how serious is this? Well its not going to cause any extreme damage if you decide to visit your dentists on a regular basis to make sure this plaque is removed. If you let it go unchecked however it can lead to serious problems down the road. In fact gum disease has been linked to serious conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer. So even visiting your dentists only twice a year is better than completely ignoring this condition.
