Stop Your Bleeding Gums for Good

It is very common for dental patients to experience bleeding gums. This is especially true for dental patients who are not diligent in obtaining their check ups or with at home dental care.

While bleeding or swollen gums may seem just a minor inconvenience, it is most often an indicator of a deeper underlying dental condition. Normally, bleeding gums is a preliminary sign of early-stage gum disease known as gingivitis.

Gingivitis, if not treated quickly and effectively can grow into full periodontitis. Advanced stage gum disease can lead to tooth decay, damage to teeth, jaw pain and even changes to your teeth’s position or your bite. It can all start with those bleeding gums.

Simple ways to combat your bleeding gums include:

  • Brushing after each meal. When you brush you wash away a number of bacteria and germs that can cause gum disease, bad breath and tooth decay.

  • Floss, floss and floss. This is often the culprit behind bleeding gums – patients who fail to floss. That’s also often when you’ll notice your bleeding gums, while flossing. It’s a telltale sign of poor dental hygiene at home. By flossing daily you strengthen your gums and eliminate debris and pockets of germs that can cause disease.

  • Visit your dentist regularly. By obtaining professional cleanings twice a year you eliminate built-up plaque that can cause gum disease over time. This plaque can be difficult to remove with brushing at home alone.
