Questionable Teeth Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums originate from gum disease that should be treated at your earliest convenience.

Periodontal disease and gingivitis are diagnosed in dental hospitals in KC daily.

Patients are ultimately responsible for the condition of their overall health.

Fear continues to keep a great number of potential patients from scheduling a dental appointment.

Putting off needed care may find you forced to find an emergency dentist in KC.

Confront life on your own terms and chances are reduced for managing life from a state of crisis.

Crisis management does not have to be your normal operating basis.

Your choice is made without an opportunity to consciously choose, operating in a crisis mode.

A famous transmission repair company advertises, if you don’t get needed transmission repairs, “you can pay us now or pay us later.”

They imply from their advertising, not confronting needed repairs will still cost you in the long run.

Dentists use techniques that reduce the anxiety levels of patients.

Fear is no longer a major concern in dentistry for patients needing care.

Bleeding gums are caused from a variety of concerns.

Mothers during pregnancy have hormonal issues that cause gums to bleed.

Tartar and plaque along with food debris are removed with proper brushing technique and use of dental floss.

Tar and nicotine leave a heavy dark residue on teeth that also attract plaque.

The main culprit in these issues is inflammation.

Removal of the stain and irritants initiates healthy teeth and gums.

Preventative maintenance with regular oral hygiene appointments keeps problems to a minimum.

Prescription mouthwashes are sent home with patients to keep inflammation within tolerable limits.

The active ingredients in these mouthwashes are fluoride and chlorhexidine.

They reduce inflammation thus reducing gingival bleeding.

Holistic health through herbal preparations also promote gingival health.

Herbal preparations through essential oils have been used down through the ages promoting total health.

Bleeding tissues in the oral cavity should be investigated for more serious underlying problems.

Mouth oder is another sign of underlying gum concerns.

Deep within gum pockets is bacteria that forms sulfide gases, a sign of bone loss.

Deep scaling and root planning removes inflamed tissue, bacteria, and irritants from gum pockets.

If your finger was bleeding for what ever reason, it would be given immediate attention for treatment.

The same should hold true for problems noted in the oral cavity.

Bleeding gums should be treated at your earliest convenience.

Importance of Your Dental Health

Importance of Your Dental Health Basic Disease Control

Basic disease control programs are designed for patients to use as part of a home care system.

Emergency dental teeth cleaning regimens  provided in the office are able to reduce significantly bleeding gums.

I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.

Major gains obtained in the dental office must be reinforced at the patient’s home.

Dentists constantly make a strong case for proper flossing and brushing techniques.

We send our patients out of the office with good demonstrations how to implement a good home care program.

The key is a program that can be done in the same manner it is demonstrated.

Mouth washes in the form of prescription or over the counter brands will not resolve the total problem.

There are times formulas in a bottle are looked upon by dentists as shotgun remedies.

Shotgun solutions may initiate some results, but true solutions to gum disease require daily hands on regimens recommended by your dentist.

After a good brushing and flossing regimen, the proxi-brush cleans debris from teeth interproximal areas where bacteria are missed.

Your home care program should include the removal of interproximal debris.

Food breaks down allowing plaque and bacteria to develop.

Toxins seep underneath the gum tissue causing crestal bone loss in its initial stages of breakdown.

A chronic gingivitis is the result of missed opportunities for oral hygiene care.

Automated systems are excellent for oral health but manual toothbrushes are still used by a large segment of our patient base.

For those using manual toothbrushes it is important to use soft bristled brushes.

It is assumed by the public harder bristled brushes are the better cleaning toothbrushes.

We find in dentistry a greater incidence of cervical abrasion with the use of harder bristled toothbrushes.

The enamel and the softer dentin meet at the gumline root junction.

Cervical abrasion is caused by aggressively brushing in a rapid back and forth motion causing a friction burn at the gumline.

The fragile enamel at the gumline is destroyed exposing the tooth root causing sensitivity.

Establish basic disease control with proper brushing and flossing techniques.
