Bleeding Gums After Your 6-Month Cleaning?

bleeding gums McCordsville

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital for ideal dental health. However, some dental patients worry because their gums tend to bleed after a thorough cleaning.

Is this a problem? Well, it depends. If your gums bleed for a day or two after your cleaning, it isn’t really a problem. But, if the bleeding and tenderness last longer, you really need to return to your dentist and the possibility of gum disease.

Gum disease develops when plaque builds up along the gum line. You might also notice bad breath, painful chewing, and loose teeth.

Hi, I’m Dr. Dale Behner of Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS in Fishers. Avoiding gum disease is just one of the many important goals I have for my patients. Along with ideal dental health, I also seek to give my patients the sensational smiles they desire through cosmetic dentistry.

Some effective procedures include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening, inlays/onlays, and tooth implants. If you want to correct several unattractive features in your smile, we can design a custom smile makeover that includes a combination of these services. It is not an exaggeration to say that modern cosmetic dentistry performed with proficiency truly works miracles with your smile!

Our top services here at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS include:

porcelain veneers
dental crowns
dentures
Invisalign
wisdom teeth extraction

Our patients appreciate our comfortable office and friendly staff. If you are looking for a local dentist with competence in preventative, general, and cosmetic dentistry, we invite you to schedule an informative consultation by calling 317-842-2337.

    Pat S.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
