Do your gums bleed when you brush? You might need teeth scaling.
If plaque and tartar is left on the teeth, it hosts the perfect conditions for bacteria to thrive. This bacteria irritates the gums which can cause them to bleed easily. You may notice this if you are brushing your teeth, or eating, and sometimes your gums may bleed a bit. This is the early stage of gum disease called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth by scaling and polishing them. It's an important procedure to ensure a long and healthy life for your pearly whites!
