Need to know: bleeding gums

If you are just starting to floss your teeth your gums may bleed a little but bleeding from the gums during routine teeth brushing isn’t normal. Early signs of gum disease are sore and irritated gums which bleed easily.

Key takeaways

– Gum disease can be treated with help from your dentist

– Gum disease can cause teeth sensitivity, receding gums and tooth loss

– Regular brushing and flossing helps fight gum disease.

Visit your dentist if your gums bleed when you brush them

“The accumulated plaque around the gumline will cause problems if it’s not removed“.
