There are many reasons why your gums may be bleeding such as aggressive brushing, a new flossing routine, or taking certain medications. However, one of the most common reasons for bleeding gums is gum disease. In particular, it can be a sign of gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease which can develop into more progressive stages of periodontitis.
How do I prevent it?
While practicing good oral hygiene is always recommended, the only way to find out what is causing your gums to bleed is to see a Periodontist.
