What Causes Your Gums to Bleed?
Imagine this scenario you’re brushing your teeth and you notice blood on your toothbrush and all over the inside of your mouth. If this is a first-time occurrence, you usually panic what could possibly be wrong here?
Infection, injury or inflammation is the usual cause of bleeding gums. If you don’t brush or floss properly, a thin layer of plaque can form at the gum line. Gingivitis or swelling of your gums can quickly set in causing the initial bleeding.
How Can I Prevent My Gums from Bleeding?
There are lots of ways to protect your gums from disease. Here are some to consider:
- Brush your teeth gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss after each meal; change your toothbrush frequently.
- Avoid using mouthwash that contains alcohol this can aggravate the situation.
- Keep your diet healthy; avoid carbohydrates and sugary snacks that invite plaque buildup on teeth and gums.
- Take necessary vitamin supplements; ask your doctor about any prescription side effects that may affect your gums.
- Avoid smoking and chewing tobacco obviously these can’t possibly help the situation
- Come in for your regular exams.
