Why Your Gums Are Bleeding

28th / November / 2017

Do you experience bleeding gums when you brush or floss? Although bleeding gums are commonly associated with gum disease, there are other reasons.

Key takeaways:

  • Brushing your teeth with too much force or using a toothbrush with hard bristles could hurt your gums.
  • Medications for depression, seizures and hypertension sometimes lead to inflammation and bleeding of gums.
  • Bleeding gums in smokers is usually a sign of gum disease and require immediate assessment by the dentist.

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles, avoid smoking and regularly visit the dentist for check-ups.
