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
