Do you have sore, bleeding or tender gums? As gums typically do not bleeding, you may be affected by an underlying gum problem.
Bleeding gums (gingivitis), if left untreated, can lead to long term gum disease (periodontal disease), associated with bone loss, shifting and loose teeth, bad breathe and the loss of perfectly good teeth.
In the majority of cases, gingivitis is easily reversible with a thorough professional clean by our dentists. If you are specifically worried about sensitivity or discomfort during your cleans, we can apply a desensitiser or even numb the gums before starting.
Whether you are concerned about bleeding gums, suspect you have gum disease or are already being managed for gum disease, just contact us.
