3 Reasons not to Ignore Bleeding Gums

A picture of a patient of Jason E. Wagle, DDS, MS with bleeding gums.Many people mistakenly think that bleeding gums are normal. The truth is that it is not normal and is usually a sign of something going wrong inside your mouth or with your overall health. If you notice that your gums are bleeding, it could be due to one of the following reasons:

1.  Gum disease - This is the most common reason for bleeding gums and a very good reason to see a dental professional. Gum disease can be treated only in its earliest stages. If you wait too long, you could suffer serious consequences such as bone and tooth loss.
2.  Medications - Certain medications could make your gums more susceptible to bleeding. If the medication causes your blood to thin, it could become very easy for your gums to bleed. If we find that this is the case, you might need to talk to your healthcare professional about alternatives to the medication that you were prescribed in order to protect your gums.
3.  Hormones - Fluctuating hormones can also cause your gums to bleed. It happens most often during pregnancy, but can occur during any time that your hormones are changing. Because bleeding gums can be a sign of gingivitis, it is best not to diagnose yourself and assume that your hormones are causing the bleeding.

Bleeding gums are nothing to ignore. If you notice even a slight tinge of red when you brush your teeth, it is best to come in for an appointment. This will allow us to fully exam what is happening in your mouth and determine the right treatment plan to get things back on track.
