No matter what you may have heard, it is never natural or normal for gums to bleed. Even if you brush or floss twice a day, you should not see any “pink” in the sink. If you start to notice that your gums are bleeding after you practice normal oral hygiene, it is time to take action. After all, you could have undiagnosed gingivitis or periodontal disease.
Dr. Monte McCourt has treated many patients who have bleeding gums in Denver, NC and the surrounding region. After a thorough examination, he will be able to give you an idea as to why your gums are bleeding. Together, you can map out a plan to fix this problem.
Some of the most common reasons for bleeding gums include:
• Gingivitis or periodontitis that has gone undetected
• Medications you may be taking that have blood thinning properties, such as aspirin, high blood pressure mediations, birth control pills, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)
• Hormonal fluctuations you are experiencing (Pregnant women often come to Dr. McCourt for treatment of bleeding gums and gingivitis, as do those in the middle of menopause.)
Remember, healthy gum tissues should never bleed. If you are noticing bleeding or inflamed gums, schedule your consultation with Dr. McCourt as soon as possible.
