Why are my gums bleedingByThread Owner
Why are my gums bleeding, I notice when I brush my teeth I get a little blood on the one side of my tooth, is there a reason for this?

I do smoke and have perfect health otherwise, and yes I do brush my teeth and floss!

Several things could be going on with your gums but you should seek professional evaluation. Some causes could be due to vitamin C deficiency or vitamin K deficiency. Also you could be brushing too hard. Others could be due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Medication could cause bleeding gums as well. The most common cause of gum disease is inadequate plaque removal from teeth at gum line resulting in inflammation of gums (gingivitis) or peridontitis (infection of the gum line involving the teeth and bones. Bleeding gums could be serious so it would be wise to visit your dentist.

More than likely it is gingivitis. This is caused by long-term plaque build up on the teeth. it is when your gums become inflamed (swollen) or some type of infection. Some of the symptoms are: sore gums to the touch, bleeding from your gums, blood on your toothbrush even when brushing lightly, a shiny appearance to your gums or a bright red or reddish purple appearance to your gums. I was told when I was younger that when I brush my teeth, I should brush my gums lightly too. It is supposed to prevent gingivitis. You should go see a dentist and they will do a deep cleaning and possibly give you an anti-bacterial rinse to use.

What follows tartar buildup is gingivitis, a condition in which your gums become swollen and inflamed. When your gums are in this condition, brushing could lead to bleeding. If this continues, it can lead to an even more serious condition called periodontitis, or gum disease

Sometimes if you accidentally brush with force on the gums it happens. If you brush lightly near the gums and on the gums then you shouldnt have that. Brushing your gums lightly should stop that, also if you floss up to your gums that could happen.

I think its normal to see that on a toothbrush ... Maybe the toothbrush is too stiff and it irritates/scratches your gums . It shouldnt be anything bad since you have good health and brush/floss your teeth . ^-^ or your brushing too rough lol .

brush, floss, and use mouth wash. dont scrub so hard. the mouth is the fastest healing tissue in the body. Regularly doing mouth cleaning reduces risk of gingervitas, and other mouth related problems. scrubing, and flossing too hard can cause the soft tissues to open, so be gentile and do a good job. if the gums are tender, or swollen, find a dentist. brushing your teeth should not hurt, if it does, then find a dentist. teeth should not be loose, unless you are loosing child teeth, and growing adult teeth. if your adult teeth are loose, find a dentist.

Bleeding is caused by gum disease caused by not flossing. This can be cured by flossing and brushing around those teeth longer than usual. I use baking soda and brush hard. The dentist told me that doing this for about two weeks will remove the plaque and stop the bleeding. It actually worked! Another way to help yourself is to pay for a deep cleaning. The new technology on this is fast, but the mouth area has to be deadened and the process is expensive.

Bleeding gums are usually caused by Gingivitis. Brushing your teeth personally is no comparison to a professional Dentist cleaning. It is important for you to make a Dentist appointment with your local Dentist for consultation and information.
