Why are my gums bleeding?

If your gums are bleeding, it could be a sign of something serious. Bleeding gums are often a sign of periodontal disease, which is a serious gum infection that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

The most common sign of periodontal disease is bleeding gums, which may come in the form of bright red blood or pinkish saliva when brushing or flossing. Other signs of periodontal disease include red, swollen, tender gums; persistent bad breath; receding gums; and loose teeth.

Fortunately, periodontal disease is preventable and treatable. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for professional cleanings. If you already have periodontal disease, your dentist can work with you to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

If you are experiencing bleeding gums, it is important to see your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist can diagnose the cause of the bleeding and recommend the best course of action. Your dentist may also recommend a deep cleaning to remove the plaque and tartar that can contribute to gum disease.

No matter what the cause of your bleeding gums, it is important to take it seriously and seek help from your dentist. Bleeding gums can be a sign of serious gum disease and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
Taking preventive action and visiting your dentist regularly can help you maintain healthy gums and a beautiful smile.
