Bleeding Gums

Do you have bleeding gums? Bad breath and gum recession are not the only things you need to be worried about if your gums bleed when you brush your teeth. As stated by Dr. Donal Clem, president of the American Academy of Periodontology, “The inflammatory response from gum disease my increase harmful chemicals circulation in your body.” Several studies link gum problems with heart disease, stroke and arthritis. Even though gum disease is more of an issue in adults, kids are at risk too if they have poor brushing habits and diets. At any age, see your dentist if you are seeing red!
