Q: What should I do if my gums are bleeding?
Healthy gums do not bleed!
Bleeding gums are a sign of infection. Healthy gums do not bleed. Brush and floss the area well. If bleeding persists, Contact Us immediately for an appointment.
Infection can lead to Gum Disease and tooth loss. Bleeding gums can often be your first indication of infection. Early stages of Gum Disease are rarely painful, so bleeding gums may be your only indication of Gum Disease! Healthy gums do not bleed.
So what's the moral here? Healthy gums do not bleed.
What happens I do if I can't make my reserved appointment?
We understand things do come up and rescheduling your reserved time may be necewssary. We ask that you notify us as soon as possible to allow us time to contact another patient who is waiting to receive the dental care they desire. To best serve our staff and our patients, it is necessary for us to charge a $35 no show or late cancellation fee. For 2 or more no shows or less than 36 hour cancellations a $40 reservation fee will be charged. This fee will be reimbursed upon arrival at the next reserved time. If for some reason you are unable to keep that reservation or do not give us at least a 36 hour notice, the fee will be non-refundable. But rest assured, this only applies to those who repeatedly miss their reserved appointments!
