Help! My teeth bleed when I brush them! What should I do?
Gums that bleed are a symptom of the onset of gingivitis which is an early stage of gum disease. Sometimes people stop brushing as frequently due to pain or fear it will make their gums bleed more. This is in fact not the case and brushing, can actually reduce inflammation. Your dentist can help determine the level of disease present and the best treatment for you.
