Is it good for your gums to bleed when you clean your teeth?
No. It means that your gums are unhealthy; you need to clean them more often, and to use mouthwash and floss if you don't already. --- When your gums bleed or are inflamed (look a little puffy or red) that is a sign of periodontal disease, such as gingivitis. To combat this, be sure to brush your teeth regularly, and use floss and mouthwash to assist in getting rid of the plaque that causes it. Another suggestion is to use water irrigation, which can go under the gumline better than a toothbrush or floss to get rid of food particles that were missed.

Answer . \nAn STD is an infection and you can get one in your mouth if you go chomping on something that carries the infection, so you need a trip to the doctor pronto. Fortunately, they can be treated pretty well with antibiotics. Might not be a bad idea if you dragged your sex partner along fo…r a test too.\nGingivitis carries those sort of symptoms too, so although it's not an STD, whatever you've got needs some treatment.

Several diseases have bleeding gums as a symptom. The most common diseases would be periodontitis, gingivitis, or gum disease. It is important to rule these out before you go on to looking for more exotic causes of bleeding gums. See a good dentist. Pregnancy can cause bleeding gums, as can bi…rth control pills. This has to do with fluctuating hormone levels. In fact, almost any hormone therapy can cause bleeding gums. Certain anti-seizure medications such as dilantin can cause bleeding gums. Bleeding gums can be associated with certain vitamin deficiencies, such as vitamin C or vitamin K. The latter indicates a problem with the liver. Alcoholism can be a source of bleeding gums.

You have to wash your mouth out with salt water (about half a tea spoon in a glass of water I think), don't gargle with it - move your head gently from side to side to move the water around your mouth, lean over the sink and let the salt water fall out. Do NOT spit, especially in the first day or so… after the extraction. Personally, I found it disgusting and used an ALCOHOL FREE mouthwash (find one that's good for gum disease) after trying salt water in the first 2 days. Do NOT drink the salt water (as the previous answer stated) - salt water is an emetic and will make you sick (MORE)

I have good dental health but suddenly today the gums surround 1 or 2 teeth are red swollen and very painful. there is very little bleeding only when i floss the area hard. whats going on?
Your gums may just be irritated. If this problem persists for more than a week or so, you should call your dentist. If you are not a regular flosser, this could be the problems. The plaque can irritate your gums and cause them to bleed when you floss.
sometimes it does but not all the time. Orbit does but if it is not by a dentist then not at all.
if it is orbit but any other kind could irratate your gums and your teeth. So if the doctor does not presrcibe it you should not use it but try using orbit it might help if you need it

Its normally a symptom of Gingivitis, and can lead to gum disease if not treated.
Teeth get decayed when the bacteria (plaque) that lives in your mouth sticks to your teeth, feeds on the carbohydrates (eg. sugar, starch etc) that you eat and the produces acid. If the plaque is not brushed/flossed off of the tooth surface, the bacteria continue to make acid that softens the surfac…e (enamel) of your tooth. If this happens for long enough, the bacteria move down through the layers of the tooth, making a cavity. To keep your teeth healthy: . Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste - clean all surfaces of the teeth, right down to the gum-line. . Floss once a day to clean away the plaque between your teeth and down on the gum-line. . Don't snack on sugary food or drink. . Limit the amount of soft drinks, juices, energy drinks and sports drinks you have - these have very high acid (and sugar) levels. . See your dentist for a check-up at least once a year. It will work out cheaper in the long-run (fillings and complex treatment is expensive!) and nobody likes toothache when the cavities get bigger. Fix any cavities while they are small and don't hurt! (MORE)

The technical way of saying it is clean your teeth, as you scrub them and use a tooth paste (a cleaner) ...then your teeth are clean.
Yes it can bleed from the soft tissue inside the tooth which is called the "Pulp". The dental pulp is a collection of nerves and blood vessels which can bleed if damaged. For instance if you fall over and accidentally break your front tooth exposing the dental pulp then you will see it bleed. Simila…rly if the dentist drills to remove very deep tooth decay and exposes the dental pulp in the process, then the dentist will usually see bleeding coming from the pulp, if it is healthy. (MORE)

It's good for your teeth in the same sense that all sugar free gums are: they boost saliva flow, which in turn cleans your teeth. Cinnamon has been known to strengthen your gums (the ones in your mouth, not your wrapper), but I doubt that most cinnamon gum uses a lot of authentic cinnamon, think alo…ng the lines of artificial cinnamon replacement. If you want the beneficial effects of cinnamon, I suggest brushing your teeth with it once a week. It's very good for you if your gums are weak or diseased. (MORE)

I meticulously brush my teeth about four or five times a day and I don't understand when i brush parts of my gums hurt and bleed what do I do?
Don't brush that much in a day. 2-3 times is more than enough. You're definitely doing more harm than good by brushing so much and causing irritation. If you MUST brush that much, (which really, you need to stop being so anal because that is such over kill.. replace 2 brushing sessions with mouth wa…sh instead), but again, if you must, buy a soft bristled brush.

Sometimes it can be brushing your teeth/gums to rough, when thishappened to me I was advised to use: . Bonjela . Sensitive toothpaste . Using my brush more lightly Hoped this helped New Answer; Brushing and flossing alone cannot completely remove all of theplaque and biofilm from a per…son with gum disease. If it could,most gingivitis would be non-existent. Plaque biofilm is full ofanaerobic bacteria (living without oxygen) that are deposited onyour teeth and in the concave root surfaces under your gums. Yourbrush and floss can't physically reach all of these areas tocompletely remove these bacteria. However, with an irrigator, youcan easily deliver a stream of water to flush the bacteria andloose particles out of these hard-to-reach areas. --------------------- Managing gum disease is all about daily plaque control -essentially sound oral hygiene. That means, in most cases, stoppingthe plaque in your mouth is really in your own hands. Brush everyday. Floss every day. Period. Your dentist or oral hygienist mayrecommend fluoride toothpaste or tartar reduction rinses. ColgateTotal is approved by the FDA for helping to prevent advanced gumdisease by reducing plaque and tartar. Dental professionals recommend oral irrigation as a great way toreally clean teeth and gums. Oral irrigators get what yourtoothbrush and floss, don't, so plaque and tartar and the resultingadvanced gum disease never come back. Oral irrigators flood the mouth with a jet of water under pressureto flush offending food particles and bacteria from the mouth. Andmost importantly, from under the gum line where the infection is.It is just like a wound on your arm - you must keep it clean for itto heal. There are many types of irrigators. Fairly new on the market areirrigators that attach to your shower head or your sink faucet suchas Waterpik or OralBreeze. A search on Amazon will produce 99% of available products. All types have pros and cons. (MORE)
