Treatment for infection gums
Healthy gums helps to hold your teeth firmly in place and protect teeth from bacteria and infection. Bleeding gums is a sign of gum disease which can lead to serious consequences such as loss of teeth. Gum disease is an infection of the tissues supporting and surround the teeth. It is caused by the accumulation of bacteria which causes a ''pocket'' between the gums and teeth. Bacteria under the gums can dissolve the bone supporting your teeth and cause them to feel loose. This is a silent process and most people do not find out until the tooth has to be extracted. This is why we are extra vigilant when it comes to detecting gum disease.
