Gums Should Never Bleed!
If your gums bleed while you’re brushing or flossing, you may have periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease. This dental health condition affects 80% of Americans, according to the U.S. Surgeon General. Gum disease can be characterized by not only bleeding gums, but through redness and swelling, chronic bad breath, and loose teeth. If you have family history of periodontal disease there is a higher risk and greater chance that you may have this disease.

Is Gum Disease A Big Deal?
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that has infected gum tissue and irritated it in a number of ways. If it remains untreated in anyone (no matter how healthy they are) it can have long-term damage to oral health, including loss of teeth and bone loss. Additionally, gum disease produces toxins that can travel through the blood stream to major organs and has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, and respiratory disease.
