Bleeding gums indicates that you have gum disease. The cause of this disease is tartar (tartar) and dense plaque. If you have a complaint of bleeding gums, you should definitely see a dentist.
What is dental calculus and how is it formed?
When teeth are not brushed effectively, ingested food accumulates on the teeth. These deposits, which are soft at first, become petrified by the precipitation of calcium in the saliva. These deposits, which we call tartar or tartar, contain intense bacteria and do not come out with brushing because they harden.
What happens if the tartar is not cleaned?
Tooth calculus or tartar contains dense bacteria. These bacteria penetrate into the gums and cause gum disease. First, there is swelling and bleeding in the gums. When tartar is not cleared, the disease spreads to the bone surrounding the tooth. With the melting bone, the gingiva recedes and the gingival recession progresses until the tooth is loosened and lost.
