Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

Bleeding Gums an Detroit Periodontal Disease

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for optimal dental health. However, some dental patients in the Dearborn, Taylor, and Southgate area 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 Detroit dentist and discuss the possibility of periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, occurs when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also experience bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, we’re Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai of Szalai & Szalai DDS in Allen Park. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many important goals we have for our Detroit and Southgate patients.
