When it comes to finding the best treatment for bleeding gums, you really need to seek out a professional. I, myself, had some issues years ago. I actually was not a big proponent of getting in the dentist’s chair and over the years I grew a healthy fear of going to the dentist. As long as I didn’t have any pain in my mouth, I figured I was doing just fine with my brushing that I would do every morning and night. However, what I didn’t know, was that my periodontal disease was growing and growing. The first thing that I started to notice was that I was trying really hard to control my bad breath odor. I would chew gum, have mints or sprays at the ready… all the time. I knew I was still brushing my teeth, but for some reason, I couldn’t shake it. As things progressed and I was still not visiting the dentist (and surely not a periodontist) the gum disease starting getting worse and worse. By the time I started trying to add things in, like flossing, it would only cause my gums to bleed. It was time for me to suck it up and make an appointment.
One of the really good side effects of getting married is that my wife just about forced me, to go to the dentist. When I got there I was informed that I would have to have deep cleaning done (deep scaling & root planing). Was it fun… no. Could it have been avoided? Yes. If I would only have taken good care of my mouth all along, I wouldn’t have ended up in that situation. So the moral of the story? If you’re looking for the best treatment for bleeding gums… go to a periodontist that will get you taken care of and set you on a path of healthy living for your mouth.
I was recently introduced to Post Oak Perio & Implant Center, lead by Dr. Stephan A. Kohnen. They are located in Houston, TX in the 77027 zip code. If you’re in their area, feel free to give them a call for a consultation and to get you back on the path of a healthy mouth.
