Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth?
Healthy gums should not bleed. You may have gingivitis, or gum inflammation, a predecessor to periodontitis. Forty-seven percent of American adults have some form of periodontitis or gum disease. In the early stages of periodontitis, treatment involves non-surgical procedures. However, surgery may be required in more advanced stages of the disease. Dr. Siddhi Patel and the professional team at Park Dental help patients treat gum disease in their Hilliard, Ohio office.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Gum disease can increase the risk of these dental conditions:
- Gum swelling

- Cardiovascular disease
- Heart attacks
If you have noticed any of these symptoms or conditions and think they could be connected to gum disease, call our office today at 614.254.5116. Our professional dentists will work with you to find a solution that addresses your specific needs.
Treating Gum Disease
You should schedule a visit to Park Dental twice a year so that we can check the health of your teeth and gums on a regular basis. If you have noticed bleeding gums or any of the other signs of gum disease please schedule an appointment at our office for a check-up. Even if you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, it is important to catch gum disease early on before the infection spreads and leads to more oral health problems. Gum disease can be treated with antibacterial rinses, laser therapy, gum surgery, or scaling and root planing. Dr. Patel will assess your teeth and gums before treatment in order to determine which option will work best for you and your specific oral health needs.
