  The Risk of and from Bleeding Gums  
     
       
  Regardless of the cause of bleeding gums Regardless of the cause of bleeding gums, you should neither dismiss nor ignore it as a normal occurrence because it is not! You have to understand that your bleeding gums are not only cause for concern because of your beautiful smile but because these can lead to serious health complications or can be indicative of an underlying medical condition.  
       
     
  Infected Gums, Affected Body  
     
       
  Infected Gums, Affected Body

Bleeding in the gums can occur for various reasons, such as when flossing, brushing and eating due to a bacterial infection. This is one of the first signs of gum or periodontal disease.

Researchers have also discovered links between gum disease and other diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, and osteoporosis. Oral health and many types of pregnancy complications are also closely associated. For example, in a recent study, 85 percent of heart attack patients also have gum disease – truly, a risk connection higher than for heart attack and high cholesterol levels.

The current theory: Bacteria in the infected or inflamed gums break free from the gum tissues, travel through the bloodstream, and then attach to the body parts including the heart. The risks for various diseases then increase because of the unwelcome presence of these pathogens.

The risks associated with bleeding gums cannot be ignored, indeed, for it can result in more serious health conditions!

 
       
     
  Good News, Easy Steps  
     
       
  Fortunately, bleeding gums can be resolved with a few easy steps

Fortunately, bleeding gums can be resolved with a few easy steps.

First, keep in mind that keeping your teeth and gums healthy is not just about brushing and flossing your teeth. You have to see your dentist and dental hygienist at least two times a year for periodic maintenance procedures and for dental screening. You and your dentist will be able to catch dental problems, so to speak, before these become worse.

Gum disease is often asymptomatic – no pain, no visible changes in the gums – until it reaches its advanced stage. Your dentist will be able to determine early signs of periodontal disease using modern-day technologies and techniques, thus, providing more effective treatment as early as possible. Like most curable and treatable diseases, early detection is a must for effective treatment.

Second, always brush and floss after every meal. You should have an active hand in the prevention of gum disease and it starts at home.

Third, ask yourself the following questions and if you answered “yes” to any of these questions, see your dentist immediately.

  • Do you have bleeding gums when you brush, floss, or eat?
  • Do your teeth feel or look like they are moving or appear to be longer?
  • Do our gums look like they are receding?
  • Do you have chronic bad breath?
  • Did your bite change?
  • Do you have difficulty chewing?
  • Do your gums and teeth hurt or look swollen or feel tender?

Of course, there are other factors for gum disease. These include poor oral hygiene, smoking, and excessive alcohol as well as poor nutrition.

Ask us at Ashton Avenue Dental Practice about the wide range of treatment options for bleeding gums today!

 
       
     
  Next Issue  
     
       
  On our next issue, we will discuss two important topics, namely:
  Bruxism, the clenching, clamping or grinding of teeth especially the back teeth
  • Bruxism, the clenching, clamping or grinding of teeth especially the back teeth. This habit results in jaw pain, jaw joint disorder, headaches and earaches, and many other health issues because of the stressful force applied on the teeth.
  • Dental implants, the permanent and proven solutions to missing teeth than dentures and the like. Our implant process involves the attachment of an artificial custom-made tooth to an anchor post already implanted into the jawbone.
