Hygiene

Have red, swollen, or bleeding gums?

Gums get red, swollen, and bleed because they’re full of bacteria.

Gums get red, swollen, and bleed because they’re full of bacteria that are eating, multiplying and excreting acid onto your gums and bones, effectively melting your bone away causing bone loss, tooth decay, and tooth loss.

The only way to prevent this, is by having your teeth professionally cleaned every 4 to 6 months depending on the condition of your gums and teeth.

Brushing helps remove bacteria off the outer tooth, and flossing helps remove bacteria between your teeth. However, brushing and flossing alone does not remove the bacteria underneath the gum that surrounds your tooth. That can only be done by a professional dental hygienist .
