If you’ve ever brushed your teeth or gone to the dentist and noticed that your gums begin to bleed, you may need to take some extra steps in your oral hygiene routine to stop the bleeding. Your dentists, Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta at Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH, can advise you on common ways to prevent your gums from bleeding and keep your smile healthy and strong.

How to Prevent Your Gums from Bleeding

If you’ve been brushing your teeth and notice that your gums begin to bleed, that may be an early sign of gum disease and you’ll need to make changes to stop your gums from bleeding in the future. It’s important that you have a proper and thorough oral hygiene routine and are keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as you possibly can. Your oral hygiene routine should consist of daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular visits to your dentist in Nashua, NH, for checkups and routine cleanings. You can also rinse your mouth with a mouthwash to help rid your gums of any lurking bacteria that you may have missed while brushing and flossing.

You may also need to make some lifestyle changes to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. An important thing to do is to stop smoking. Smoking is a major cause of gum disease and can lower your body’s immune system, making it more susceptible to disease and bacteria. If you’ve also noticed that your gums continue to bleed and are swollen, it may help to rinse your mouth out with warm salt water to fight off irritation from bacteria in your gums.
