Bleeding Gums and Bad Breath Treatment
Solution – Scaling (Professional Teeth Cleaning and Polishing)
Scaling removes the hard tartar which forms on your teeth. You can't remove it just by brushing your teeth. Scaling also removes the trapped food and plaque containing millions of germs, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine are also cleaned away when your dentist polishes your teeth.
Scaling and polishing cleans your teeth thoroughly.
What are the benefits?
- Regular scaling and polishing once or twice a year by a dentist helps keep your teeth and gums healthy by making it easier for you to keep your teeth clean at home. You should see and feel the difference.
- If your gums bleed when you brush, you may have early gum disease. Regular scaling helps to stop the disease getting worse.
- Gum disease can cause bad breath, bleeding gums, teeth sensitivity and teeth loosening which you can prevent by regular professional teeth cleaning (scaling) and home care.
