Dear McKenzie Towne Dental Patients,
The health and well-being of our patients and our team members is our top priority. We recognize the level of concern and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Our office is closed for all non-essential dental treatment indefinitely, but we remain on-call for any emergent dental issues such as swelling, acute pain, and trauma.
If you or a family member has an upcoming appointment scheduled at our office we will get in touch with you when we are back to work to confirm future dated appointments.
As healthcare professionals, keeping you and your families safe is very important to us.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and patience as we continue to work our way through this unusual and challenging time.
Your McKenzie Towne Dental Team
Do you see blood in the sink when you brush your teeth? This can be due to a chronic infection in your mouth. It isn’t normal for your gums to bleed when you brush them. When this happens, it can indicate the presence of harmful bacteria.
Gums are snug as they help keep bacteria from entering the roots of your teeth. But in some cases, they can recede or get loose, allowing bacteria to sneak in and damage tissues. Severely damaged tissues can cause teeth to fall out as the gums can no longer keep them in place.
Bacteria can also reach the bloodstream and cause various medical conditions. This can also result in extreme pain and the process can be slow.
Possible Reasons Your Gums Bleed When You Brush
Every step you take to care for your teeth is also one step you take to ensure a healthy body. Don’t fret when your gums bleed. Dental professionals can help you address it.
Here in our dental office, we recommend routine dental hygiene appointments to our patients to keep their mouth clean, healthy, and strong.
Whether it’s a dental emergency in South Calgary or just a regular checkup or cleaning, McKenzie Towne Dental wants to make your experience as comfortable and convenient as possible.
