Healthy gums don’t bleed: that’s why you should immediately ask for a consultation if you have been experiencing gingival bleeding.
Also known as pyorrhea, periodontitis is an infectious disease caused by aggressive bacteria invading the structure supporting the teeth (gums, bone, root cementum and periodontal ligament). The chronic inflammation of these tissues triggered by periodontitis can be very severe, to the point that, in the final stages of the disease, patients experience the loss of all the teeth involved.
Bleeding gums is one of the main symptoms of periodontal disease, and, therefore, should never be underestimated.
You should be concerned if you frequently find blood when brushing your teeth.
If it persists and is chronic, your gums are not healthy and you should immediately contact a dentist to verify the causes of the bleeding.

IMI Clinic is the only clinic in the world to use the innovative and non-invasive PERIOBLAST™ protocol to cure periodontitis. Thanks to the systematic and combined use of the surgical microscope and laser, it is often possible to treat periodontitis without resorting to surgery. The microscope allows us to treat the roots avoiding the opening up surgically of the the affected area, while the laser makes it possible to eliminate pathogenic bacteria even in those areas that cannot be reached by pharmacological products.
