I had my teeth cleaned by this dentist and my bottom front four teeth were bleeding by the gums during the scaling up until the next day. Now I see there are holes along the gumline there. It looks like the dentist hacked away my gums. Is this a problem? Are the holes viable to infection?

  • If the gums are injured during the cleaning then that will heal but you have to take care that it does not get infected as the chances of infection are there. For that do not irritate the gums and maintan very good oral hygeine. Do warm saline rinses.
