Excessive gum bleeding with blood clots, had teeth washing the earlier day. Could this be an infection?

Dear Doctor, I m suffering from non stop excessive gum bleeding with blood clots today. I can t even aware when was this condition started until I woke up this morning, I think it maybe happened in the mid night. But I ve never ever suffer this before except a slightly gum bleeding during brushing. I am wondering that is there any infection of teeth washing conducted by dentist a day before?

Most of the case bleeding gums are seen in poor oral hygiene with huge calculus deposits.
-It can be because of any blood disorders
-It can be because of hard brush(if the brush is new and it is hard) which has injured your gums(gingiva) leading to bleeding
-Chronic Gingivitis

Initially u can start with mouth rinse with luke warm water with salt and massage with gum astringent till you get professional consultation and find the exact cause.

Hi Tiffany...
There are various reasons associated with gum bleeding & this condition is known as gingivitis. What all u need to do is start with vitamin therapy along with antioxidants.You should also go for Metrogyl-400 twice a day for one week.Moreover once go for oral prophylaxis.Also increase uptake of citrous fruits like amla, lemon, orange & it will definitely get cured.
Take care..

Welcome to HealthcareMagicForum

Hi..Tiifany... the most common cause for the gum bleeding is vitamin c deficiency.., increase intake of citrous fruits like lemon, orange, sweet lime, papaya will decrease it... since only single episode not worry, if many episodes, then need to be treated with multivitamins for 2 to 4 weeks..

Take care..

i read your problem.this seem to be a case of severe chronic
generalised is severe inflammation of
gums .the most commin cause of this is bad oral hygiene.
other causes are stress,vitamin deficirncy,bleeding disorders
i would advise you to get cleaning of your teeth with betadiene
irrigation in gums.
rinse mouth with warm saline water.vitamin and iron supplements
will help.use soft nylon brush for brushing.
