Regular check-ups and cleanings at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo are essential for good dental health. But in some people their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning, causing them concern.
Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a couple days after your dental cleaning, don’t worry about it. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to return to our office to check for the possibility of gum disease.
Gum disease arises when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also see bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.
It is a progressive condition and a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It is also treatable, but as with most conditions, the earlier it is diagnosed and the treatment begins, the better.
At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo we want all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Patients from throughout American Fork and Lehi come to our practice for family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
