Swollen, Bleeding Gums?
by: Dental Assistant Team


No matter how we look at dental hygiene, we cannot understate the importance of our gums. Swollen, bleeding and sore gums are a cause for serious concern… not only to your oral health but your whole body health!



Make no mistake about it - bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease, and are an indicator of an infection in your body.  Look at it this way… if you have a cut on your finger and it is swollen and infected, you would want to treat it – you would want to remove the infection, right?

The exact same thing is happening in your mouth when you have gum disease.

Gum disease will not disappear on its own, and brushing harder and stopping flossing will not solve the problem.  It must be addressed with professional cleaning and treatment.  In fact, in more advanced cases, root planning (scaling) or deep cleaning is required (this is when the hygienist has to go below the gum line to remove the infection.)

Remember the cut analogy… swollen, bleeding gums represent an active infection in your body. If you do nothing, your overall health is greatly compromised.
