Why do my gums bleed?
Bleeding gums are often a sign of inflammation or possible gum disease. Even if you have always been healthy, your oral health can change over time. Pregnancy, age, dexterity, medication, and underlying medical conditions can all have an effect on your oral health. You may even be surprised to know that things like an unhealthy diet or chronic stress can negatively impact your periodontal health.
If we catch gum disease early, we can often reverse it with proper care at home and professional dental cleanings. Contacting our Denver dental office at the first sign of a change in your oral health helps us treat it quickly, often saving you time, money, and discomfort.
