Bleeding gum can be a sign of gum disease, do not ignore it, Surrey dentist explains

If you experience bleeding gum while you are brushing you teeth don’t consider it as normal. Surrey dentist specialized in gum disease treatment explains that the bleeding is a disease process called gingivitis caused by bacteria and if not cured can cause tooth loss and some serious health conditions and systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, and bacterial pneumonia.

If gum is not treated at this stage, it can progress to a much more serious condition called periodontitis (gum disease). This is when the gums and bones are seriously affected. If the gum disease progresses to a more advance level the chances of loss of teeth will increase immensely.

The good news is that periodontal disease is the most preventable disease, and if proper measures are taken at early stages you can likely reduce your risk of losing teeth and number of other very serious health concerns.

Treatment is easy, a thorough scale and polish, by dentist or hygienist can treat the problem. In this case prevention is not only better than cure but also less expensive, so the warning message is do not ignore to treat gum problems at early stages. This can save you a lot in the long run on other dental and medical bills.
