Why Are My Gums BleedingAre your gums bleeding when you brush? Are you finding that you can taste blood in your mouth after eating and drinking? If so then you need to see a dental professional as soon as possible because you may have got gum disease or another related gum problem.

Why Are My Gums Bleeding

Healthy gums do not bleed for no apparent reason. Therefore, when you start to notice reoccurring blood it is important to seek advice. Bleeding gums are a sign that something is not right with your dental health. Often, this means that gum disease is developing and it will need immediate investigation by a dental professional. Gum disease, in the early stages, can be simple to cure. This may involve a deep clean, scale, and polish, alongside dental hygiene tips for you to complete at home. However, when gum disease develops into Periodontitis there is no cure, only management. That is why it is so important to get your bleeding gums checked out as soon as possible.

Other Causes Of Bleeding Gums

  1. Brushing too vigorously can cause the gums to bleed. This is also bad for the enamel and the gums as it can cause them to weaken, recede or become infected.
  2. Medical conditions such as Diabetes can be the cause of bleeding gums. If you suspect you have any underlying medical issues then do consult your doctor immediately.
  3. Smoking and drinking could increase the risk of bleeding gums and the development of further issues.
  4. Not eating a healthy diet that consists of fresh fruit & vegetables, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients could also be a cause of bleeding gums.
