Are you dealing with bleeding gums? We provide affordable periodontal disease treatment.

Causes of bleeding and swollen gums

The number one cause of bleeding, inflamed gums is gum disease (also known as periodontal 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 enhance 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

Give Skypointe Dental a call and schedule your appointment today. We will evaluate your mouth for signs of sensitivity and gum disease whenever you are in for a check-up or cleaning. Together, we will preserve your oral health!

How can I check for signs of dental disease at home?

Only a health professional can diagnose a disease. But there are many alert signs that you should take as a reminder to schedule a dentist appointment as soon as possible.

These include:

  • Bad breath
  • Swollen, red, or bleeding gums
  • Loose gums, or pus coming out of gums
  • Changes in the amount of saliva you produce
  • Pain, especially when eating
  • Tooth sensitivity

What should healthy teeth and gums feel like?

For a healthy tooth, chewing should’t feel painful. Nor should your teeth feel sensitive to at extreme temperatures.

When your tooth is cracked, a sharp and momentary pain results from the pressure of your bite. A cracked or fractured tooth can also feel sensitive to temperature extremes.

Healthy gums should be pink, firm, and smooth. Your gums should not bleed when you brush. Healthy gums should also be scalloped in appearance and should hold tight to each tooth. If caught early enough, you can avoid periodontal (gum) disease.

How do I get rid of bad breath?

Do you find yourself covering your mouth or keeping your distance from others? Everyone experiences bad breath (halitosis) from time to time; it is a common problem! The cause could be beyond your oral hygiene habits.

Some products, like mouth rinses, gum, and mints, are advertised to eliminate bad breath. As helpful as they are, those types of solutions generally only temporarily cover up the problem and don’t address the cause.

The most popular and immediate method is to brush and floss thoroughly after meals to prevent mouth odour. Regularly seeing a dentist twice a year is proven to help eliminate many of the more serious causes of bad breath.


What causes bad breath?

Generally, the trigger behind bad breath is due to bacteria in the mouth. As bacteria in your mouth break down those food particles, it releases that lovely bad breath come morning time.

Other possible reasons behind bad breath:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Sinus infections
  • Tonsil stones (tonsilloliths)
  • Food stuck in a filling or graft
  • Chronic dry mouth
  • Gingivitis or gum disease
  • Smoking, Cannabis and chewing tobacco users
  • High blood sugar and poorly managed or undiagnosed diabetes
  • An abscessed tooth, gum disease, tooth decay and other oral infections
  • Reflux or GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Ketosis, often seen among people who are crash dieting or fasting
  • Medications or a recent course of systemic antibiotics

Tips to keep your breath smelling fresh

  • Brush and floss your teeth after meals
  • Brush your tongue twice daily
  • Add a water flosser to your oral hygiene routine
  • Use a neutral pH mouth rinse twice daily
  • Drink plenty of water each day (8 glasses minimum) and eat a healthy well-balanced diet
  • Reduce alcohol and caffeine intake
  • Have a dental check-up and cleaning every six months

What can I do to treat bad breath?

Your best shot is with a stricter dental hygiene routine. In addition to brushing your teeth after every meal and flossing every day, a good dental care routine should involve a professional cleaning every 3-6 months.

This can keep plaque at minimal levels and slow down bacterial growths inside your mouth, preventing bad breath.
