How to Take Care of Bleeding Gums?

Bleeding from any body part is abnormal. When it occurs following brushing and flossing, it indicates that something in your mouth needs care. It is nonetheless tempting to overlook. In the end, there is no suffering. However, healthy gums should not easily bleed.

Here is a list of probable causes of bleeding gums in ascending order of severity.

New Toothbrush – If you have just converted from soft to firm bristles, you may suffer bleeding. Revert to using a brush with soft bristles. You should observe an improvement.  

Aggressive Brushing – Is your brushing method excessively aggressive? Many feel that brushing more vigorously will result in cleaner teeth. Not true. While some pressure is necessary, imagine a light massage. If the bristles on your toothbrush look spread, you may be applying too much pressure.

Variations in Flossing – If you alter the frequency with which you floss, your gums may bleed. If you are new to flossing or if you miss a day or two of flossing, you may observe a little bit of blood. But it should cease after two days. If you experience bleeding each time you floss, you may have gingivitis.

Gingivitis – Gingivitis is the initial phase of gum disease. It is a non-painful disorder in which plaque accumulates behind the gum line. This causes the gums to separate from the teeth, which results in the formation of pockets that can collect food particles and develop germs. Professional cleaning and improved dental hygiene can reverse the situation. If not, the situation deteriorates.

Periodontitis – Plaque has now solidified into tartar, indicating the onset of periodontitis. The gums are afflicted with a severe infection. There is damage to the supporting soft tissue and bone of the teeth. The infection can contribute to systemic inflammation. Chronic poor breath, uncomfortable eating, and tooth loss can result from tooth decay.

Fortunately, bleeding gums may be avoided. Simple is the formula for success:

  • Brush at least twice daily
