Q: My gums often bleed. What does this mean?
A: Bleeding gums can be a sign that you are at risk of, or already have, gum disease. If your gums bleed regularly or even if only during brushing, it is important for you to see your dentist for this to be assessed.
Q: How can I maintain healthy gums?
A: It is important to follow the instructions from your dentist in order to maintain healthy gums. Improper brushing and flossing technique may actually irritate or traumatise the gum tissue.
