Bleeding Around Teeth and Implants
Bleeding around teeth or implants is not healthy. It is a sign of inflammation and probably infection. The xrays below are before and after bone regeneration. The first xray is an implant with debris around it and bone loss. I performed a guided bone regeneration procedure and grew back the bone that was lost to infection.
If you have bleeding around a tooth or an implant, let us address it early. Early treatment is usually just cleaning.
