Bleeding Gums Treatment

Plaque Removal

This involves routine dental cleaning of the teeth. Oswal Dental Clinic Dentist in MG Road, Pune offer the best dental treatment. According to them bleeding gums can be best treated by removing the plaque bacteria from your teeth because they cause gum disease. The dental plaque if not removed slowly builds up and turns into tartar which is a sticky and hard substance. The tartar adheres to the teeth and if the teeth is not cleaned regularly it can become the breeding place for more plaque. The tartar which is formed creeps below the gum line and can cause infection in the teeth which eventually leads to bleeding of gums.

Scaling and Root Planing

In this treatment deep cleaning is done with dental tools to remove the dental plaque. Non-surgical treatment procedures like scaling and root planning help to slow down the process of gum diseases and can prevent bleeding gums.

Periodontal Therapy

If you are suffering from any form of advanced periodontal disease, the dentist will recommend periodontal therapy which is an ongoing bleeding gums treatment. This might include dental surgery, gum surgery or special dental laser therapy to control the bleeding of gums.
