Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums Casselton

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for optimal dental health. However, some dental patients in the Moorhead, Casselton, and Hillsboro area worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning.

Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a day or two after your cleaning, it isn’t really a problem. But, if the bleeding and tenderness lasts longer, you really need to return to your West Fargo dentist and discuss the possibility of periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, occurs when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also experience bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, I’m Dr. Dennis Hetland of Designer Smiles in Fargo. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many important goals I have for my West Fargo and Hillsboro patients. Along with optimum dental health, I also seek to give my patients the beautiful smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry including porcelain veneers, crowns, dental bonding, and teeth whitening.

Our top services here at Designer Smiles include:

Porcelain veneers
Teeth whitening
Dental implants
General dentistry
Restorative dentistry

Making smiles bright extends beyond the doors of Designer Smiles, especially each March through June when we proudly participate in the Smiles For Life campaign. During this time, 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures go to children’s charities, including right here in the F-M area. This year, we have selected Haley's Hope Dyslexia Learning Center as the local charity of choice.

We make helping children and bright smiles easy—simply contact us to schedule your teeth whitening appointment. You get a brighter, whiter smile, and children get a reason to smile, as well. If you are already happy with your bright smile, simply ask about the other ways you can participate in helping children.Dr. Hetland is a Smiles For Life participating dentist in Fargo, North Dakota to benefit children's charities.
