Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Pacifica

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are important for prime dental health. However, some people worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City.

Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a couple days after your dental cleaning, don’t worry about it. But if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to return to our office so we can check you for signs of gum disease.

Gum disease arises when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also experience bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss, so it’s something we take very seriously. It responds best to treatment when it’s caught in the early stages.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, our services include general dentistry, and specialties like dental implants. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
