Bleeding gums is an oral problem, it’s a sign of inflammation of the gingiva. Unlike what is said on popular belief, it is not normal. If you believe it’s because you are not brushing and flossing properly, then do so. But if bleeding still exists more than 2 weeks of proper oral hygiene, or if you have other symptoms like bad breath, then it’s probably something more serious and you need to be checked by your dentist. Watch this presentation on 5 simple ways on how to prevent bleeding gums.

  • 5. Ways to prevent bleeding gums The St James Dental Group• Here are some simple ways on how to prevent bleeding gums: 1. Brushing your teeth regularly. Brushing is the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It is recommended to brush 2-3 times per day. The toothbrush and the toothpaste are big factors to proper oral care.

You still need to go to your dentist at least twice a year. Nothing will replace a professional dental cleaning. http://www.dentistcudahyca.com
