hello there ,

According to your clinical history i suspect you have developed severe inflammation of the gums called as gingivitis .

Gingivitis is mainly caused due to poor oral hygiene , accumulation of bacterial plaque and calculus deep in the gum pockets and root surfaces of the teeth that leads to gum problems like bleeding , redness , recession and sensitivity.

Gum bleeding is also caused by deficiency of vitamin c and vitamin b12 .

i would suggest you to consult a dentist and get the thorough scaling and root planing done for your teeth .

A multivitamin course and supplementaion of vitamin C will help in reducing the gum bleeding by tissue repair.

i hope this information helps ,

take care,\.

The bleeding gums may be due to infected gums called gingivitis.
Get your teeth cleaned.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Use soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth.
Chlorhexidine mouthwash can prevent plaque accumulation.
Use gum-tone gel to massage your gums.
INclude vitamin-c rich fruits into your diet.
Take care.

Hi Paul,

Welcome to HCM,

It looks like its been a long time that you have visited a dentist. Bleeding gums indicates you may be having Gingivitis(gum inflammation). All you have to do is to get a professional scaling( cleaning of teeth) done in order to reduce the bleeding of gums. Hope I helped you.
