Why Your Gums Bleed After You Brush Your Teeth

January 2nd, 2017 | Blog

teeth smile health beautySpitting pink every time you brush your teeth is a sign of gum disease. Mild gum disease or gingivitis refers to the chronic buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth.

Key takeaways:

– Plaque will cause inflammation and swelling around the gums the longer that it stays there. Gingivitis does not cause pain and may go unnoticed for a long time.

– Gum disease is linked to the increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

– Good oral hygiene will help prevent gingivitis. Brush your teeth twice every day and floss your teeth to avoid plaque buildup.

Make an appointment with your dentist, too. Guys with bleeding gums or signs of cavities—toothache, pain when you eat hot or cold food, or pain when you bite down—should get a cleaning every three months.
