What Should I Do If I Have Bleeding Gums?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell emphasizes the importance of seeking dental care if you notice bleeding gums, as it may indicate gum disease, which can impact overall health.

If you notice that your gums are bleeding, it’s important to seek dental care as soon as possible. Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease, a serious condition that not only threatens your dental health but can also have wider implications for your overall health.

Gum disease, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and may even affect your cardiovascular health. Additionally, it has the potential to exacerbate other health conditions you may have. By addressing gum disease early with professional dental care, you can significantly reduce these risks.

Therefore, if you’re experiencing bleeding gums, don’t delay in contacting your dental care provider. Prompt attention and treatment can help preserve both your dental and general health.
