Causes of bleeding and swollen gums
The number one cause of bleeding, inflamed gums is gum disease.
There are multiple stages to gum disease and the initial stage, gingivitis, can be prevented with regular brushing and flossing. Other causes can be due to brushing or flossing too hard, being vitamin C deficient, smoking, or even hormonal changes.
Signs of gum disease:
- Swollen inflamed gums
- Bleeding gums with flossing or brushing
- Receding gums
- Constant bad breath
- Sensitivity to hot or cold drinks
- Loose, shifting teeth
How to prevent bleeding gums
Keep a good oral hygiene habit of regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.
To elevate your oral health you can:
- Increase your dental hygiene routine to after every meal
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Rinse and swish with saltwater
- Get enough vitamin C
- Drink more water to help wash away food and bacteria
- Have regular dental cleanings and check-ups
