Patients diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis will require specialized plaque removal treatments in order to stop the bleeding. Antibacterial rinses can be used to reduce the effects of inflammation and treat gingivitis. Those with periodontitis will need actual treatments from dentists, especially if their plaque problem is too severe.
Dr. Robinson of Embry Hills Dental Care uses scaling and root planing to clear awkward spots between gums of bacteria and other debris that could cause bleeding. If you need professional treatment for your bleeding gums, come to our office today, and let Dr. Robinson address your gum problems.
