ASK YOUR DENTIST FOR ADVICE
The first step to healthier teeth and gums is always to seek professional advice. Here are 5 questions to ask your dentist.
How can I stop my gums from bleeding when I brush?
There could be a number of reasons why you are spitting blood when you brush. Your symptoms could be caused by hidden problems like gum disease or even brushing too hard. So it pays to get a professional opinion.
Am I brushing my teeth properly?
If your gums are inflamed, brushing too hard could also cause them to bleed. Ask your dentist for tips on how to improve your technique. They may also suggest flossing or adding a mouthwash to your daily routine. Take a look at our expert brushing and flossing guides too.
How often should I change my toothbrush?
If the bristles of your toothbrush are splayed outwards, or you have had the same toothbrush for three months or more, now could be a good time to change. Ask your dentist which type of brush is right for you.
Are there any other reasons why my gums could be bleeding?
The reasons why your gums are bleeding may not always be clear - like the ‘invisible plaque bacteria’ that causes gum irritation. Your dentist will be able to spot hidden causes and treat any underlying problems. LEARN MORE ABOUT GUM DISEASE
