Gum Bleeding is a Serious Problem

Do your gums bleed when brushing your teeth?

  • Are you afraid to brush your teeth so they don’t bleed?
  • If you have bleeding gums, you may be facing a serious problem! 

Gum disease is one of the most common chronic diseases in humans. Gum bleeding is one of the most common symptoms of this disease. This can often lead to a process leading to tooth loss.

Periodontal diseases (gum diseases) are responsible for 70% of tooth loss in adults. In addition, the teeth, which are in direct contact with the blood circulation and immune system in the body, may lead to the occurrence of more diseases than is thought or may cause the exacerbation of existing diseases.

Many studies show that conditions such as heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, rheumatic diseases, premature birth, miscarriage during pregnancy may be associated with dental diseases.


Why do gums bleed?

The main cause of bleeding gums is the accumulation of plaque around the gums. This creates a condition called gingivitis or inflamed gums. When plaque hardens in the tartar and causes bleeding, it leads to a more advanced disease of the gums and jaws known as periodontitis.

As a result, bone loss, along with tooth loss, occurs. However, it is possible to prevent tooth loss with early diagnosis. For this reason, early diagnosis is of great importance in periodontal treatment.


In Which Situation Should You Apply To The Dentist?

It is absolutely necessary to consult a dentist for periodontology treatment in problems such as bad breath, sensitive gingiva, bleeding in the gums, recession, change in the position of the teeth starting to move away from each other or swinging, change in the harmony of the existing prostheses in the mouth and jaw structure.

Ultrasonic devices are increasingly preferred in gingival diseases due to the convenience they offer in treatment and the minimum damage they cause to the tooth surface.

What are the Causes of Gum Diseases?

The main cause of gingival diseases is the bio-film layer formed due to insufficient brushing of the teeth. It is inevitable for patients who do not do basic brushing, do not use dental floss, and do not use mouthwash care to form tartar, tartar and biofilm.

For this reason, we recommend our patients not to neglect their oral and dental care on a daily basis, and to come to our clinic at least twice a year for their checkups and professional dental cleaning.

Gum Bleeding Treatment Process

Our teeth are the only organs in our body that cannot heal on their own, therefore, instead of the reactive treatment methods of the past, preventive and preventive treatment methods are applied today.

We first listen to the complaints of our patients who come to our clinic for the treatment process. We determine the treatment needed by the patient by using all imaging techniques deemed necessary in the initial examination and follow-up. Afterwards, we share the stages of the treatment process with our patient.

First of all, we apply professional dental and plaque cleaning procedures to our patients. At this stage, we aim to remove all tartar and dental plaque without damaging the patient’s tooth surface by using the ultrasound scaler device.

Treatment with Modern Method Technological Application

Then, if necessary, we clean the teeth stains by means of the airflow device working with high pressure air and then polish it. At this stage, we pay great attention to cleaning the teeth stains in the shortest time, in the most effective and permanent way, without damaging the patient’s tooth surface. In the next step, we clean between the teeth with dental floss and apply fluoride to the tooth surface.

We can use both hand tools and ultrasonic devices in the treatment of our periodontal patients. The point we pay attention to when choosing the ultrasonic device we use is to reach the periodontal pockets and biofilm in the most effective way, while our patient feels the pain at a minimum level.

During the treatment, we use a special liquid containing hydroxyapatite, which makes this possible. In this way, while the patient does not feel any pain most of the time, we can perform all necessary cleaning and treatment steps in the periodontal pocket. In this way, we gain the patient’s belief in treatment and their trust in us. Therefore, patients continue their treatment without interrupting their controls.

Ultrasonic Devices Are Also Ideal For Implant Perimeter

Gum bleeding around dental implants has also increased in recent years. This is because the physician does not perform the implant or its coating inadequately, or the patient does not perform adequate care and cleaning procedures. This causes the irritation in the gums and tooth pockets to turn into periimplantitis, a very serious gum disease, over time.

In periimplantitis diseases, the most effective cleaning should be done by reaching the tooth pockets. This cleaning is only possible with the use of ultrasonic devices and tips made of the most suitable material for the implant surface.
