Melissa O. SAYS!
Bleeding in the gums means there is an ACTIVE DISEASE going on in that area. It is the plaque and calculus that is filled with bacteria that infects the gum tissue.
The good thing is that we can reverse the bleeding and help maintain a healthy mouth by removing the plaque with proper brushing, flossing and using a mouth rinse. Also coming for regular dental cleanings to remove the calculus (tartar) that hardens to the tooth surface.
When starting proper oral hygiene at home you might notice bleeding are soreness in the gums, but if you continue to keep up the gentle brushing and flossing daily. The gum tissue will slowly improve until there is no more soreness and bleeding. Please give it a good 7 to 10 days to see the improvement.
