What are Bleeding Gums?
If you experience bleeding gums when you brush or floss your teeth, you shouldn’t simply shrug it off. Bleeding from the gums is a sign something is wrong. This could be that you’re brushing too vigorously or have the wrong type of toothbrush for your oral health needs.
At other times, it could be due to an injury or sensitivities from pregnancy. Bleeding gums, along with other symptoms such as redness, swelling and tenderness, can also be signs of more serious oral health issues. This includes gum inflammation and gum disease.
