Bleeding Gums

Healthy gums do not bleed!

Bleeding gums are a sign of gingivitis or an infection. Healthy gums do not bleed. Brush and floss the area well. If bleeding persists, contact your dentist immediately for an appointment. Infection can lead to Gum Disease and tooth loss. Early stages of Gum Disease are rarely painful, so bleeding gums may be your only indication of Gum Disease!

So what’s the moral here? Healthy gums do not bleed!
