Bleeding Gums Treatment Manassas, VA

Why do my gums bleeding when I brush my teeth?

If your gums are bleeding, be sure to contact your Manassas, VA dentist as soon as possible. Bleeding gums are not healthy and indicate the progression of a bacterial disease called periodontal disease, or gum disease. Gum disease is a progressive disease that can spread to the bloodstream causing systemic health complications. Caught early, gum disease can be treated and managed through proactive dental hygiene. Dr. Nadder Hassan offers periodontal therapy treatment options for varying stages of gum disease.

The Importance of Treating Bleeding Gums

By the time your gums begin to bleed, the disease-causing bacteria have already started to spread. Ignoring the signs of gum disease can have severe implications for your health. Patients with advanced stages of gum disease are more prone to serious health conditions. Treating gum disease can help prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.

Gum disease can affect patients at any age. Children with poor oral hygiene habits can develop gum disease, even before their adult teeth come in.  Patients with increased rates of tooth decay are often at a higher risk of developing gum disease. Regular dental health exams and a good daily oral hygiene routine can prevent the development of gum disease for children and adult patients.  A professional teeth cleaning twice year keep teeth and gums clean and oral bacteria in check.  Brushing and flossing are the best way to keep your mouth fresh and healthy in between visits to the dentist.
