Periodontics (Gum Treatments)
If your hands bled when you washed them, you would be concerned. Yet, many people think its normal if their gums bleed when they brush or floss.
Are your gums swollen…or do your gums bleed when you brush? Swollen and bleeding gums are early signs that your gums are infected and in danger of causing permanent damage. Imagine your reaction if your hands bled every time you washed them. Yet so many of us think its normal for our gums to bleed when we brush or floss. In serious cases, infected gums can destroy bone and teeth structures causing teeth to become so loose that they have to be extracted.
At Colina Dental, we’ll provide a complete periodontal exam before any treatment is performed or recommended. Following are a few of the most common periodontal treatments.
