While a dentist will often associate bleeding gums with periodontal (gum) disease, there may be other factors to take into account.
- Brushing your teeth too hard or in the wrong manner can cause the gums to bleed.
- A toothbrush with very hard bristles can irritate the sensitive gum tissue.
- Those who have just started flossing will often experience minor bleeding.
“When you brush hard, you can irritate gums and cause them to bleed.”
