Bleeding Gums

Do Your Gums Bleed When You Brush or Floss?

When gum tissue becomes irritated and starts to bleed, it creates a way for bacteria to enter the bloodstream and travel to other areas of the body. If you are experiencing bleeding gums, contact Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche, Dr. Justin Hardison, and Dr. Fadi Hasan as soon as possible. Causes of bleeding gums can include:

• Medications
• Hormones
• Gingivitis

Other Causes of Bleeding Gums

The health of your mouth plays a role in the health of your entire body, so any signs of gum disease need to be taken seriously. Bleeding gums are one of the symptoms of gum disease and can be a sign that your gums have become inflamed or infected.

  • Brushing Too Hard

  • Ill-Fitting Dentures
