Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Valley Ranch

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital for prime dental health. However, some dental patients worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning.

Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a couple of days after your dental cleaning, don’t worry about it. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to return to your dentist and the possibility of gum disease.

Gum disease arises when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also see bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, I’m Dr. Jessfor Baugh of The Lewisville Dentist in Lewisville. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many essential goals I have for my patients. Along with ideal dental health, I also seek to give my patients the beautiful smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.

Some effective procedures include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening, inlays/onlays, and tooth implants. If you want to correct several unattractive features in your smile, we can design a custom cosmetic dental smile makeover that includes a combination of these services. It is not an exaggeration to say that modern cosmetic dentistry performed with proficiency truly works miracles with your smile!

Our top services here at The Lewisville Dentist include:


sedation dentistry
dental implants
teeth whitening

Our patients appreciate our comfortable office and involved staff. If you are looking for a local dentist with proficiency in preventative, general, and cosmetic dentistry, we invite you to schedule an informative consultation by calling 469-708-4713.
