My Gums Bleed When I Brush or Floss: Should I Be Concerned?

If you’re your gums consistently bleed or feel sensitive when you brush, that could be a sign of periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. But just because you’ve noticed some bleeding doesn’t mean it’s time to panic. Gum disease is a widespread issue that affects many patients to varying degrees.

But even though we don’t want you to panic, we do want you to take action.

First, start by calling Dr. Polley’s Las Vegas dental office to schedule a consultation appointment with us. During your appointment, Dr. Polley can carefully look at your teeth and gums to determine how serious the issue is. For some patients, treating gum disease is just about spending more time brushing and flossing. For others, though, more extensive (though still non-surgical treatment) gum disease thereapy is needed.

At Dr. Polley’s Las Vegas office, our comprehensive, non-surgical treatments for gum disease include:

  • Scaling
  • Root planing
  • Arestin
  • And other restorative treatments

After Dr. Polley has determined how serious your condition is, we’ll work with you to create and implement an effective treatment plan.

To schedule a periodontal checkup and consultation, call Dr. Polley’s office today. Together, we can help patients from Summerlin, Spring Valley and Las Vegas make a healthy smile a priority.
