Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, the dentist will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless.
If this area is not kept clean the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria that resides in the tartar and plaque. It’s very important to have your dentist check this place if you have bleeding during brushing.
