The experts suggest simple steps to improve your gum health, while keeping a keen eye out for worsening of the bleeding and inflammation.

Invest in a new toothbrush

Perfect your teeth-cleaning product line-up. Gum inflammation and bleeding can be treated/cured using products specifically designed for gum health, including brushing your teeth twice daily with a sonic toothbrush and using fluoride toothpaste.

Book regular professional cleaning

It’s extremely important to regularly visit your hygienist and dentist for professional cleaning:  Visits to a dentist and hygienist are not just important to prevent and treat dental decay but also for the health of our gums and the overall health of our mouths.

Perfect your at-home brushing technique

While the above may seem straightforward, it is not just the frequency of toothbrushing and flossing that is important but the method in which it is performed.  An incorrect technique can be ineffective at removing plaque from the gum line, resulting in gum disease and can also cause tooth wear. And this highlights how imperative it is to avoid putting off those early gum concerns. With gum disease having both treatable and reversible elements, it’s well worth speaking to your dentist the moment you spot any soreness or bleeding. 

If you have a periodontal/dental implant condition, it’s important to receive treatment before it becomes a dental emergency. At the Havrilla Center for Periodontics & Dental Implants located in Broomall, PA, attending to your comfort and concerns is our first priority.  Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality of periodontal and dental implant care in a warm and friendly environment.
