Why do my gums bleed?

Wednesday - October 21st, 2020

Bleeding gums can be a sign gingivitis, or inflammation of your gums. It’s a common and mild form of gum disease, and it’s caused by a buildup of plaque at your gum line. It’s also possible to have bloody gums due to flossing, teeth brushing, chewing tobacco, or cuts. If bleeding is occurring when you brush your teeth it’s time to visit a dentist before the problem progresses.
