Why do my gums always bleed after I brush?

Because you have an infection and every time you eat, you get bacteria and pus in your bloodstream. Not a pretty picture, but bleeding gums are not simply a nuisance, they’re a real threat to your health.

The good news is that it’s easy to fix. Proper brushing and flossing and making an appointment with your dentist to have the bacterial buildup removed, and then being taught the proper way to use a toothbrush and dental floss. When was the last time your dentist showed you how to brush your teeth? I do it for all of my patients with bleeding gums.

If that’s you, come and see me and we’ll get it fixed.
