Bleeding Gums Causes

photo for bleeding gum causes for evolve toothbrush, best for bleeding gumsNo one can argue that bleeding gums causes gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease.  It’s a well-known fact.  Once you notice your gums are bleeding either during or after you brush your teeth, you need to look at yourself in the mirror and say “I must take better care of my teeth and gums!”

The reality is, if you don’t begin a better mouth-care regimen, and fixing your bleeding gums causes, you may join the five to fifteen percent of the population who have a much more serious kind of gum disease, called periodontitis.

Periodontitis is when the bone and gums that hold your teeth in place are weakened.  Bad bacteria on your teeth release toxic substances that severely harm your gums, causing them to become infected.  The inflammation that results as your body attacks the bacteria damages the gums and jawbone further, causing severe pain.  If left untreated, this process can lead to the loss of some of your teeth.

So what’s the answer?  What are the bleeding gum causes?  Usually, gums bleed because you have either been neglecting them by not flossing and brushing regularly, or you have not been flossing or brushing properly.   Teeth like soft bristle brushes massaged in a circular motion.  Gums like gentle flossing between the teeth.

When this is ignored, plaque builds up on your teeth and spreads to the gum line, sheltering bacteria lurking there, causing inflammation and irritation. Consistent with EVOLVE.

In addition, other bleeding gums causes might include smoking or chewing tobacco; genetics; hard-to-clean crooked teeth, hormones, diabetes, and medications.   The best way to determine what is causing your bleeding gums is to visit your dentist regularly.
