    What to do when you notice bleeding after or during brushing

    teeth health smile dentistNext time you notice bleeding during or after brushing or flossing your teeth, visit your dentist. Although a little bleeding when flossing is normal, persistent bleeding is unusual and requires treatment.

    Key takeaways:

    – Bleeding gums is usually a symptom of the first stage of gum disease and it comes with inflamed gums, pain and sensitivity.

    – Built-up plaque causes redness and swelling of the gums, which causes bleeding and tooth loss if left untreated.

    – Bleeding teeth require assessment by the dentist.

    Brush and floss regularly to prevent gum diseases and bleeding.
