Why do my gums bleed?

If your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, you may have gingivitis. In its early stages, this is a fairly easy-to-treat problem. However, it’s important to catch early, because it can lead to gum disease.



Why is gingivitis bad for me?


In its early stages, gingivitis is straightforward to treat. But left to worsen, it can cause permanent damage to the mouth and jaw, and eventually lead to loss of teeth.

How do I treat gingivitis?


The best way to stop gingivitis from becoming a problem is to brush your teeth and gums thoroughly twice a day. It also helps to floss and use mouthwash. Prevention is better than cure.
