Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

Categories: Dental Health

bleeding gums Long Sious

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are critical for prime 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 experience bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, I’m Dr. Steven Deneka of Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall. 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 unforgettable smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.

Some effective procedures include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening, inlays/onlays, and tooth implants. If you want to correct several unattractive features in your smile, we can design a custom smile makeover that includes a combination of these services. It is not an exaggeration to say that modern cosmetic dentistry performed with expertise truly works miracles with your smile!
