Why do my gums bleed?

Bleeding Gums | Apex NC DentistBleeding when you brush or floss your teeth is often an early indicator of periodontal (gum) disease. Gum disease is an infection in your gum tissue caused by bacteria. Bacteria feed on food particles and the plaque that collects on your teeth. 

You can avoid gum disease by brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once per day. Regular dental cleanings will also help to keep infection at bay because no matter how diligently you brush and floss your teeth, you cannot remove all plaque on your own. It will eventually harden into tartar and cannot be removed using a toothbrush and floss. 

Our dental hygiene team is gentle and expertly removes plaque from your teeth using precision instruments designed to work efficiently and comfortably. We can educate you on proper home care so that you can avoid gum disease in the future.

We may also treat gum disease using a specialized dental cleaning that removes tartar from above and beneath your gum line. This allows your gum tissue to heal properly and reduces inflammation.

We may also apply a local antibiotic treatment to heal any particularly troubled spots and schedule more frequent dental cleanings until your health is restored.
