Each morning, when you brush your teeth, do you notice a tinge of red in the sink after you spit? Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease and should not be played off as no big deal. You should have your dentist examine your mouth soon so that the problem can be addressed and a treatment plan assigned. Your oral health is important now and for many, many more years. Neglecting to tend to things that are obvious signs that there are problems can lead to bigger, more complicated problems. Use my experience with dental problems to learn what signs to be aware of so you know when to call your dentist.
