Facts about Gum Disease and Bleeding Gums Treatments

At some point in their past, nearly all of us have had to content with swollen or bleeding gums, and have had to consider a treatment. Changes to our bodies and to our diets can all breed some bad behaviour from our gums, and getting to the root of the cause of such problems is our job as periodontists.

But while we can solve nearly any issue arising among our patients, there is nevertheless a good deal of misinformation surrounding our topic. So let’s clear up some common misconceptions.

Bloody gums are unhealthy

Bloody gums, regardless of the cause, are not healthy gums, and the sooner that you diagnose and treat the underlying cause, the easier a time you will have sorting out the problem.

Receding Gums cannot be reversed

Receding gums will not retrace their steps, at least, not naturally. This is one reason that early treatment is necessary in cases such as these – there is no time to waste to prevent this issue from continuing.

Bad Breath is a sign of a poor oral health

Almost universally, bad breath – unless stemming from something that someone has recently eaten – stems from an issue with one’s oral health. Causes can vary, from a lack of flossing to gingivitis, but quality of breath is typically a good litmus test for the overall health of one’s gums.

At National Periodontics, we can manage everything from bleeding gums treatments, to oral health checks, to diagnostics with the most modern and effective treatments out there. Contact us today to find out more.
