Bleeding Gum

A Narre Warren dental patient came to us complaining of gum bleeding.She said that she brushes her teeth regularly and floss all the teeth at least once a day and never experienced gum disease before.None of her parents or her siblings has lost their teeth early in their life.she doesn't take any medication.
