Thanks for asking the query ,

Bleeding from the gums is mainly due toinjury , infection and inflammation of the gums.
It occurs due to plague and calculus deposition .
Systemic conditions like GERD , vitamin deficiences , bleeding disorders , leukemia, hormonal changes can lead to bleeding gums .

Visit dentist and get complete check up done .
Take an OPG .
Get complete mouth scaling and polishing done .

Take vitamin suplements .
Develop a habit of brushing tooth twice daily with a soft bristle toothbrush .
Develop a habit of using dental floss and interdental cleaners .

Oral cancers occurs if you have a long term habit of using tobooco,smoking , you dont have a cancer so dont worry at all .

Hope this helps out .

Well this does not seem to be a big problem. What you need is simple dental scaling. If more deposits are there then you may have to undergo currattage and a doxycycline 100mg course for 7 days(after consultation with dentist). The most important thing here is following a correct brushing technique, ask for it from the dentist. He would be delighted to tell u this.

dear friend.

thanks for sharing your concern.

bleeding occurs due to gingivities.

gingivities is caused due to poor oral hygiene,plaque.deposits etc.

acidic feeling in throat is due to acidity in your stomach.also seek a physician`s help in this regard.
it could be GERD also.what does your endoscopy say?

time being i suggest you to visit your dentist.

get your scaling and root planing done.this would not cost you much.
take an opg to see your periodontal condition.

also this will surely cure your gum problem.

regarding acidic feeling you can take tab omeprazole 1OD for 15 days.

i think it should help.

who said you have cancer?relax there is no such sign or symptoms.

follow maintainence therepy like regular brushing,flossing etc. after your oral prophylaxis(scaling).

hope i have answered you.

Hi and welcome to HCM,

Bleeding gums is one of the signs of inflammation. your gums are inflammed which is knows as gingivitis .

This may be caused due to poor oral hygiene , improper brushing and rinsing which leads to accumulation of bacterial plaque and calculus deposits in the gums and root surfaces of teeth which leads to inflammation,redness,bleeding gums and even gum recession if not treated in time.

i would suggest you to consult a dentist and get a thorough scaling and root planing done of all the teeth followed by a course of medication will help restoring your gum health.

Smoking is another reason for bleeding gums so avoid it.

deficiency of vitamins is also a reason, start with vitamin C lozenges 2 times daily which helps in stopping the gum bleed.
oral cancer is seen in patients with chronic tobacco chewing and smoking habits so do not worry about it.

For acidity you can use antacids like pentaprazole before having food .

i hope this helps,

take care.

I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist) and am glad to address to your query here.

Bleeding of gums is a usual symptom that some individuals experience in periodic intervals. gums bleeding is caused due to certain bacteria present in our mouth, there is always a risk of getting infected by some oral issue.

Gum bleeding can be controlled by applying pressure with a gauze pad soaked in ice water directly to the bleeding gums. Brush teeth gently after every meal. Use a soft brush, or a special vibrating brush to clean the teeth without irritating the gums.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at healthcaremagic through my profile directly.
