Why you should take your bleeding gums to the dentist

Bleeding during flossing or brushing is not normal and should not be ignored. Here is why you should not ignore bleeding gums.

– Unless you are using a frayed toothbrush that hurts your mouth, bleeding when brushing is a sign of gingivitis or severe gum (periodontal) disease.

– Other signs of bleeding gums are redness, tooth loss and teeth appearing longer from gum recession.

Bleeding gums should be treated by a dentist.
