The team at Smiles by Shields is here to support your dental health and overall well-being. Oftentimes, missing regular checkups can lead to sore and bleeding gums.
Gums may bleed minimally after brushing or flossing, but persistent bleeding is a sign of a bigger problem. If bleeding frequently occurs when you brush your teeth or floss, this could be a sign of gingivitis–inflammation of the gumline–which is caused by the development of plaque biofilm. It is recommended that you see Dr. Tiffany Shields for an oral examination and professional cleaning to keep the progression of gingivitis at bay.
If you’ve got sore or bleeding gums, contact our office today and we’ll get you on the right track for a fully-recovered, healthy mouth and a beautiful smile!
