My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?
Bleeding is usually a sign of a problem. When gums bleed, the cause usually stems from brushing too hard or from early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. We can consult with you on the proper toothbrush and pressure for safe, effective daily oral care. If your gums show signs of gum disease, we may recommend a deep hygiene (cleaning) treatment to alleviate your symptoms and return your gums to good health.
I haven't been to a dentist in years and I'm afraid to let a professional see the condition of my mouth. Is your staff judgmental?
First of all, congratulations on your wise decision to prioritize dental healthcare. Your mouth is a big part of your overall health, quality of life, and self-esteem. We'll never judge you; instead, we'll help you by addressing your oral problems, explaining treatment options, then scheduling a plan of action that suits your unique situation.
