The number one cause of bleeding, inflamed gums is gum disease (also known as periodontal disease). There are multiple stages to gum disease and the initial stage, gingivitis, can be prevented with regular brushing and flossing. Other causes can be due to brushing or flossing too hard, being vitamin C deficient, smoking, or even hormonal changes.
Keep a good oral hygiene habit of regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.
To enhance your oral health you can:
Give Skypointe Dental a call and schedule your appointment with Dr. Darwish today. We will evaluate your mouth for signs of sensitivity and gum disease whenever you are in for a check-up or cleaning. Together, we will preserve your oral health!
Only a health professional can diagnose a disease. But there are many alert signs that you should take as a reminder to schedule a dentist appointment as soon as possible.
For a healthy tooth, chewing should’t feel painful. Nor should your teeth feel sensitive to at extreme temperatures.
When your tooth is cracked, a sharp and momentary pain results from the pressure of your bite. A cracked or fractured tooth can also feel sensitive to temperature extremes.
Healthy gums should be pink, firm, and smooth. Your gums should not bleed when you brush. Healthy gums should also be scalloped in appearance and should hold tight to each tooth. If caught early enough, you can avoid periodontal (gum) disease.
Do you find yourself covering your mouth or keeping your distance from others? Everyone experiences bad breath (halitosis) from time to time; it is a common problem! The cause could be beyond your oral hygiene habits.
Some products, like mouth rinses, gum, and mints, are advertised to eliminate bad breath. As helpful as they are, those types of solutions generally only temporarily cover up the problem and don’t address the cause.
The most popular and immediate method is to brush and floss thoroughly after meals to prevent mouth odour. Regularly seeing a dentist twice a year is proven to help eliminate many of the more serious causes of bad breath.
Generally, the trigger behind bad breath is due to bacteria in the mouth. As bacteria in your mouth break down those food particles, it releases that lovely bad breath come morning time.
Other possible reasons behind bad breath:

Your best shot is with a stricter dental hygiene routine. In addition to brushing your teeth after every meal and flossing every day, a good dental care routine should involve a professional cleaning every 3-6 months.
This can keep plaque at minimal levels and slow down bacterial growths inside your mouth, preventing bad breath.
