    Why Your Gums Bleed after You Brush Your Teeth

    If every time you time you brush your teeth, you end up spitting blood, then you have gum disease. Gingivitis or mild gum disease is the chronic buildup of bacteria laden plaque and tartar on the teeth.
    The longer plaque stays on the teeth; it will lead to inflammation of the gums close to the teeth. Brushing teeth will therefore irritate the gums causing bleeding. The buildup of plaque also leads to the formation of cavities.
    People should practice good oral hygiene to get rid of gingivitis and to prevent gingivitis. Brushing twice every day and flossing once at night will prevent the buildup of plaque.
