Suffering from bleeding gum? Are they swollen and irritated?

Bleeding gums are often a sign of gum disease.

You are advised not to ignore bleeding gums. It is quite possible that your irritated gums could be the one-time result of hard flossing or vigorous brushing. However, regular (chronic) bleeding gums could be a sign of something much bigger.

What causes gums to bleed?

  • Using a hard bristle toothbrush
  • Vigorous Brushing or flossing
  • Taking medications like aspirin or blood thinners
  • Ill Fitting Dentures
  • Inadequate oral hygiene habits, resulting in plaque and calculus deposition
  • Periodontitis (gum disease)

Bleeding gums are often a sign of a systemic health problem called gum disease.

Gum disease is serious!

Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection caused by the deposition of plaque and calculus along the gums. Without proper oral hygiene, Plaque and Calculus (often filled with bacteria), will slowly eat away and damage your teeth, gums, and bone.

Bleeding gums are one of the first symptoms of gum disease.

If Left untreated, bleeding gums can turn into painful inflammation, gum recession, bone loss, and ultimately tooth loss.
