It is a sign of gum disease like “Gingivitis” or surrounding bone loss or what we call “Periodontitis”. Left untreated, it will be a main cause for teeth loss.
Treatment for Gingivitis:
Depending on the cause of the bleeding gum the dentist will decide a treatment plan involves removing plaque and calculus off all teeth surfaces, cleaning of the teeth’s roots if needed and eliminating the depth of the periodontal pockets.
Prevention of Bleeding Gums:
Regular visits to the dentist and abiding to good oral hygiene standards are main factors of treatment success and prevention in the future.
