Good oral care and a professional cleaning every 6 months is recommended to help prevent gum disease and maintain a healthy mouth. Bacteria can build up and cause infection in the gums which can then become inflamed and start to bleed. At this stage, it is known as gingivitis, and can be easily rectified, but if left unattended, it will affect the support structures and cause periodontal disease, needing treatment and management from a periodontist. Bleeding gums can also lead to bad breath.
