If symptoms persist, see dentist for a periodontal screening. There may be existing bone loss, a heavy amount of tartar buildup, or even a rough filling with an overhang that’s causing the gum irritation. In order to eliminate the active oral infection you may undergo a thorough deep cleaning and be given a dedicated home hygiene routine.
Never ignore bleeding gums. When infection affects your oral health, it can have a direct impact on your overall wellness as your immune system works harder to control swelling and bacteria levels.
