You may not know if you have gum disease, but if you see blood in the sink when you brush, or your teeth look like they’ve moved, it’s time to act.
Maybe you diligently see your dentist for regular cleans, but afterwards your gums hurt more, and the bleeding doesn’t stop. Perhaps you blame your vigorous brushing, your lifestyle, or a gum infection.

Well, the bottom line is, if you brushed vigorously enough to draw blood, you would be causing yourself pain. However, it’s extremely rare for people to brush so hard they actually hurt themselves. If your gums bleed every time you brush, there is a significant possibility you have gum disease. But don’t stress - the sooner you come in and see us, the better your chances are for a full recovery.
Truthfully, the absolute best time to start seeing a periodontist is when you don’t have any symptoms. It’s a terrific way to be proactive about your general health too. Above all, we can guide you to keep your gums in tip-top shape. And because we are gum experts, we can identify all the risk factors for you personally and spot potential problems long before they develop into serious issues.
People with gum disease often report that they’ve been having regular cleans and say they just cause more pain without stopping their gums from bleeding. Actually, sometimes the pain and bleeding get worse after a dental clean visit. Further, if your gums are bleeding most times you brush or floss, it’s unlikely that a dental hygienist visit will change the situation. Really, it’s best to see a periodontist straight away. For instance, we can advise you on whether a regular clean will resolve your problem, so you don’t have to go through the whole process in case it doesn’t.
