Home Remedies For Bleeding Gums Stop Bleeding
  • Do you experience bleeding gums when you brush
    your teeth or just notice that your gums bleed
    when you touch them? Most people think its
    normal. But when your hands bleed when washing
    them, aren't you concerned?
  • Bleeding gums are the first and foremost
    indication of gum disease. If not taken care of
    it can spread to other parts of the bone that
    support your teeth. Eventually, your tooth will
    be loose and may have to be extracted. Medically,
    bleeding gums is called as Pyorrhea
  • There is a tendency to focus more on the tooth
    surface when cleaning teeth but really, we should
    be more focusing on the gum line. This is where
    the bacteria tend to create infection and if not
    cleaned regularly, will cause tiny cuts. While
    brushing if you touch those cuts you create
    bleeding. This is the simplest way to explain the
    disease process caused by bacteria but imagine if
    you left that cut on your hand dirty. If left
    unattended, it would never heal, and this leads
    to gums disease.
  • Cleaning your teeth and gums has become a major
    factor in keeping the mouth and body healthy. Be
    gentle but thorough with your cleaning routine.
    Here are some effective home remedies which you
    can try yourself to cure bleeding gums.

What Causes Bleeding Gums?
1. Plaque
  • It all starts with the food you eat that sticks
    to the root of your tooth call plaque. In an
    effort to get rid of the plaque the cell of the
    body's immune system release substances that
    inflame and damage the gums and bone around the
    tooth. This leads to swollen and bleeding gums.

2. Smoking
  • Smoking interferes with the normal function of
    gum tissue cells, making your mouth more
    susceptible to infections. It likewise makes your
    mouth smell horrible.

3. Hormonal Shifts
  • During pregnancy or during your menstrual cycle,
    hormones can rise and fall, making gums more
    prone to gum problems. It isnt necessary for all
    women to undergo the same complaint. Some ladies
    might suffer from inflamed gums which might cause
    irritation, redness, and bleeding when brushed or
    flossed. All these symptoms disappear after

4. Prolonged use of Medications
  • Sometimes due to long time usage of medications,
    there might be side effects that will damper the
    saliva production and leaves the oral cavity dry.
    This can lead to the fast spreading of germs
    which leads to the disease of gums. Sometimes
    blood thinners can also lead to this complaint.

5. Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Lack of vitamin C can cause harmful effects to
    the gums. A diet rich in carbohydrate and sugar
    but less fluid can easily lead to gum disease.

6. Overlapped Teeth
  • If you have an overlapped tooth, and are crooked
    or rotated this paves a path for gum problems.
    This happens because the misalignments create
    more spaces where plaque can build up and harm
    your teeth and gums. Regular brushing and
    flossing is the only permanent solution for
    solving the gum issues.

Underlying diseases
  • Most of the time bleeding gum is caused due to
    various gum disorders like gingivitis,
    periodontitis, etc.

Family History
  • Gum problems like Periodontitis can be genetic.
    If there has been a history of gum problems in
    the family, its more likely to get affected to
    future generations.
