Gingivitis ( inflammation in gums )

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX

Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic.

This is Dr. Priyanka tiwari answering your query.

Read your query, understand your concern XXXX as you have bleeding gums while brushing this is a sign of gingival inflammation this can be due to some reasons such as :
- Good oral hygiene is not maintained ( deposition of food debris subgingival areas of gums ) .
- Improper brushing technique or Use of hard bristle toothbrush.

I will suggest you to maintain good oral hygiene, use Soft bristles toothbrush to brush your teeth twice daily.
- Do XXXXXXX warm saline rinses twice a day.
- Gently massage your gums with pulp of your finger in circular motion for atleast one minute to two minutes.
- Use regularly mouthwash like Chlorhexidine or Listerine .
- Use waxed floss to clean interdental areas of teeth.
- Avoid gum irritant like tobacco containing products ( if you are taking) .
- You can take Vitamin C supplements and folic acid by consulting with your local doctor .

You should consult Oral surgeon for visual examination of oral cavity and Scaling (oral prophylaxis ) for healthy gums .

Hope I have answered your query,
If you have further query I will be happy to help.
