Hello lybrate-user, teeth cleaning is a basic dental procedure that is advised to all patients periodically. However, every individuals needs are different. If the problem still persists, it indicates a higher level of gum infection. Such cases may require comprehensive treatment with laser. You may require an x ray or scan to assess the condition thoroughly. Such conditions can be resolved with appropriate treatment plan and periodic check ups.

Hello lybrate-user, majority of patients feel gud improvement after thorough cleaning done& the post procedure medicament to be followed. But in case if you don't see any result till now then I would suggest you to seek an advice of a periodontist. To rule out the root cause of bleeding gums. I am sure you will definitely find a solution there.

Gums bleeding is due to infection in gums. Get scalling done by dentist. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.
