Every time I go to get my teeth cleaned it hurts. Not so much my teeth but my gums and they bleed a lot. Is that normal?
Dr. Devoll’s Respons:
They should not hurt that much. A little discomfort here and there may happen, but what you are describing does not sound normal, certainly not healthy. You most likely have some type of chronic gum infection that is keeping them sore. Ask your dentist to check your gums for gum disease. You could also see a periodontist and get an opinion there.
