Why do my gums bleed sometimes?
Usually bleeding gums are caused by plaque build up, resultant from poor teeth cleaning. As plaque hardens, it becomes more difficult to remove, thus trapping further bacteria in the gums. This vicious cycle keeps going, and if left untreated, serious problems can occur, leading ultimately to a requirement for teeth removal.
If your gums are bleeding it is important you make an appointment to see us at your earliest convenience, so that we can assess your situation. Our Registered Oral Health Therapist is specialised in preventing the bacterial infection that can lead to bleeding gums and bad breath.
