Bleeding gums

Inflamed gums are red, swollen and bleed when flossing.

Inflamed gums are the result of poor oral hygiene or the building up on teeth of the hard substance called calculus. The rough surface of calculus harbours the bacteria that cause the inflammation of the gums. This bacteria can also cause a bad taste in the mouth and bad breath. Over time the gums can recede and bone loss can occur leading to loose teeth. Another consequence of receding gums is unsightly black spaces near the gumline between teeth.

Poor oral hygiene can easily be remedied through following instruction on the best method of teeth cleaning at home. The treatment for calculus is a thorough professional cleaning of the teeth by your dentist on a regular basis.
