Regular bleeding from gums apart from brushing times, few gums red and eroded. Cause and treatment?

Hi....I have had bleeding gums for a very long time already but it usually bleeds not daily. However, recently, my gums have been bleeding almost everyday and the gums on some teeth are red and eroding . It doesn t just bleed when I brush my teeth. It bleeds just anytime. I am really concerned. Why is this happening and what should I do? Yong

Hi Yong,

as you had already mentioned that you had a problem of bleeding gums from long, and you had not taken any treatment for that.
now, the problem has aggravated.

I suggest you to get an appointment in dental office and get the teeth cleaning done.
there is a problem called pyorrhea in your gums that's why it is bleeding.

Get the scaling and polishing done, if the problem still persist then go for blood examination.

If you have bleeding gums nonrelated to brushing process of your teeth , then seems to be coagulopathy , microelements and vitamins deficiency. To be sure you must make an appointment with Hematologist in specialized clinic and request coagulation profile test, complete blood count, and other specific tests as per your physician advice to find out why you have this bleeding. Maintain properly diet rich in vitamins, especially Vitamin C, microelements, eat daily fresh apple or any hard consistency fruit . Change your tooth brush , make gently massage of gingiva with your fingers and consult Dentist to rule out any infection.

Take care.

hi.most of the time bleeding gums are due to poor oral hygiene.excessive plaque accumulation over the tooth surface, leads to chronic gingivitis which is prone to go for complete oral prophylaxis . Wish u good health
