Normally, your gums should be pink in color, not red. Some dental procedures may cause temporary bleeding. You may notice it for up to two days after having your teeth cleaned, for instance, but anything more would be a concern for Centennial dentists.

Regular, daily flossing should not produce bleeding gums. If it does, Centennial dentists may recommend that you change the type of floss you are using. There are many types on the market. They range from untreated, to coated, and come in the form of mint flavored wooden dental sticks, or electric flossers.
