According to the National Institute of Health, bleeding gums affects a large percentage of the population, by some estimates nearly 50%. Gum bleeding can be a sign that you may have, or at risk for gum disease. Persistent gum bleeding may indicate a serious condition and should be addressed by your physician or dental professional.

For the majority of us, however, bleeding gums are mainly due to inadequate plaque and tartar removal from the teeth at the gum line. The early sign will be red gums followed by increased sensitivity and bleeding. Left unchecked, this will lead to a condition called gingivitis or inflamed gums. Plaque and tartar are often used synonymously; however, plaque is considered the precursor to tartar. If plaque is not removed, it will harden into what is known as tartar. Ultimately, this will lead to increased gum bleeding, swollen gums, and a more advanced form of gum disease known as periodontitis.

Keep plaque in check and rinse with Periogen® treatment daily to reduce and eliminate tartar buildup. When brushing, you should brush your teeth gently with a soft-bristle toothbrush as aggressive brushes or effort will aggravate the gum situation and can wear on the gums and tooth enamel. Irrigating daily can prevent plaque from building up as well. Avoid using commercial, alcohol-containing mouthwashes, which can aggravate the problem.

Remember to visit the dentist regularly for a checkup. Many dentists are already recommending Periogen® to treat troublesome tartar build-up.
