Brief Answer: Treatment of bleeding gums is required. Detailed Answer: Hello There, Welcome to XXXXXXX Forum, Bleeding gums is usually due to gingivitis which is associated with many factors; -Microorganisms, plaque and calculus deposition. -Food impaction, mouth breathing. -Faulty tooth brushing habit. -Nutritional deficiencies. -Endocrine changes like puberty, menstural cycle, pregnancy, diabetes mellitus. Without an oppurtunity to examine and evaluate you, I am unable to narrow down the possibilities. I would encourage you to visit to a Dentist to find out the exact cause and to get the teeth cleaned. In the meanwhile; -Brush your teeth regularly with a soft bristle toothbrush. -Replace your toothbrush every six months. -Brush in back and forth, up and down motion and rinse your mouth after every meal. -Use chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly. -Take complete balanced diet with plenty of raw vegetables, vitamin C containing food in your diet like lemon, oranges etc. -Take multivitamin suplements. -Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. -Also check your menstural cycle, blood sugar level. Hope you find this information as helpful, If you have any further doubts, do write to me and i will get back to you. Take Care! Dr Qazi Ammara.
