Bleeding or Swelling

If you are experiencing bleeding gums, this may be caused by a variety of reasons.

Causes of Bleeding

Bleeding gums are primarily a result of poor plaque removal from the teeth at the gum line. This will lead to a condition called gingivitis, or inflamed gums.

If the plaque is not removed through regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings, the plaque will harden into tartar. Eventually, the tartar will cause increased bleeding and a more advanced form of gum and jawbone disease known as periodontitis.

Other causes of bleeding gums include:

  • Any bleeding disorder
  • Brushing too hard
  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy
  • Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Improper flossing
  • Infection, which can be either tooth- or gum-related
  • Leukemia or platelet disorders
  • Scurvy
  • Use of blood thinners
  • Vitamin K deficiency

Follow Your Dentist’s Instructions

It is important to follow the guidance from your dentist to maintain healthy gums. Bad brushing and flossing technique can actually irritate or traumatize the gum tissue.

With any traumatic dental injury, it’s a race against time. Contact ATA Dental Center’s emergency dental care office immediately.
