“Stop the Bleed, Protect Your Teeth”

At Kigo Dental, we understand that bleeding gums can be a concerning issue for many people. Although occasional bleeding while brushing or flossing is normal, persistent bleeding may indicate a more severe problem such as gum disease.

Gum disease is an infection that affects the tissues supporting and surrounding your teeth. Left untreated can lead to tooth loss and other serious health issues. The main cause of gum disease is the buildup of plaque and tartar along the gum line, which can cause inflammation and bleeding of the gums. In some cases, other factors such as hormonal changes, medical conditions, poor oral hygiene, or genetics may also contribute to the development of gum disease.

To prevent the progression of gum disease, it’s essential to seek treatment for bleeding gums as soon as possible. At Kigo Dental, we offer deep cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums. In advanced cases, we may recommend surgery to remove damaged tissue and promote proper healing.

Don’t let bleeding gums affect your oral health. Contact Kigo Dental today to schedule a consultation and get the treatment you need to maintain healthy gums and teeth.

Practice good oral hygiene: Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash can help remove plaque and prevent gum disease.

Avoid tobacco use: Smoking and using other tobacco products can increase your risk of gum disease and make it harder for your gums to heal.

Eat a healthy diet: A balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help support your overall health and oral health.

Manage stress: Stress can weaken your immune system and make it harder for your gums to fight off infection.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and brushing gently can help prevent irritation and trauma to the gums.

Control underlying medical conditions: If you have a medical condition, such as diabetes or a bleeding disorder, controlling it can help improve gum health.

Avoid hard or crunchy foods: Eating hard or crunchy foods can cause trauma to the gums and increase the risk of bleeding.

Visit your dentist regularly: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help detect gum disease early and prevent progression.

Gum disease: This is one of the most common causes of bleeding gums. Gum disease occurs when plaque and tartar build-up along the gum line and cause the gums to become inflamed.

Brushing too hard: Brushing your teeth too hard or with a toothbrush that is too firm can cause the gums to bleed.

Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes during pregnancy, puberty, and menopause can cause the gums to become more sensitive and prone to bleeding.

Vitamin C deficiency: Vitamin C deficiency can cause gums to become weak and bleed easily.

Certain medications: Certain medications, such as blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs, can cause gums to bleed.

Poor dental hygiene: Neglecting to brush and floss regularly can cause plaque and tartar to build up, leading to bleeding gums.

Tobacco use: Smoking and using other forms of tobacco can cause the gums to become irritated and bleed.

Gingivitis: This is a mild form of gum disease that causes inflammation and bleeding of the gums.

Periodontitis: This is a more advanced form of gum disease that occurs when the gums pull away from the teeth and form pockets that become infected.

Trauma: Physical trauma to the gums, such as from hard or rough brushing, can cause bleeding.

Scurvy: This is a rare condition that is caused by a vitamin C deficiency and can result in bleeding gums.

Leukemia: Bleeding gums can be a symptom of leukemia, a type of blood cancer.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP): This is a condition in which the immune system destroys platelets, leading to easy bruising and bleeding, including bleeding gums.

Other medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as liver disease and bleeding disorders, can also cause bleeding gums.

Improving oral hygiene: Brushing and flossing regularly and visiting the dentist for regular cleanings can help prevent and treat gum disease.

Medications: Antibiotics can be prescribed to help treat gum infections, and anti-inflammatory medications can be used to reduce swelling and bleeding.

Scaling and root planing: This is a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and roots.

Surgery: In severe cases of gum disease, surgery may be necessary to remove the infected tissue and repair any damage to the gums and bones.

Vitamin supplementation: If a vitamin deficiency is causing the bleeding gums, supplementing with the appropriate vitamin (such as vitamin C for scurvy) can help resolve the issue.

Quitting smoking: Smoking and using other forms of tobacco can cause irritation and inflammation of the gums, so quitting can help improve gum health.

Treating underlying medical conditions: If a medical condition is causing the bleeding gums, treating that condition can help resolve the issue.

Initial evaluation: A dentist or periodontist will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health, including an examination of your gums, teeth, and mouth. They will also ask about your medical history and any medications you are taking.

Diagnosis: Based on the evaluation, the dentist or periodontist will diagnose the underlying cause of the bleeding gums.

Treatment plan: A customized treatment plan will be developed based on the diagnosis. This may include a combination of the treatments mentioned in my previous answer, such as improving oral hygiene, taking medications, undergoing scaling and root planing, or quitting smoking.

Followup: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

Maintenance: To prevent bleeding gums from recurring, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene and follow any recommendations made by the dentist or periodontist. This may include regular cleanings and follow-up appointments.


Periodontitis: Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease, which can progress to periodontitis if left untreated. Periodontitis is a serious condition that can lead to the loss of teeth and jawbone.

Tooth loss: The inflammation and infection associated with gum disease can weaken the structures that support the teeth, leading to tooth loss.

Increased risk of other health problems: Gum disease has been linked to a number of other health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By treating bleeding gums, you can reduce the risk of these and other health problems.

Difficulty eating and speaking: Severe gum disease can cause pain and difficulty with eating and speaking.

Bad breath: Chronic gum disease can cause bad breath, which can be embarrassing and affect your self-esteem.

Increased risk of infection: Bleeding gums can increase the risk of oral infections, such as abscesses.

Systemic inflammation: Chronic gum disease can cause systemic inflammation, which can have a negative impact on overall health.

Follow your dentist’s or medical professional’s instructions: Your dentist or medical professional will provide specific instructions for aftercare, which may include taking medications, avoiding certain foods or drinks, and avoiding smoking. Make sure to follow these instructions carefully.

Practice good oral hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth regularly and use an antiseptic mouthwash to keep your mouth clean and reduce the risk of infection.

Avoid irritants: Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and consuming hot, cold, spicy, or acidic foods and drinks, as these can irritate your gums and delay healing.

Manage pain: If you experience pain or discomfort after your appointment, take the pain medication as prescribed by your dentist or medical professional.

Attend follow-up appointments: Attend any follow-up appointments as scheduled, to monitor your progress and ensure that the bleeding gums have fully healed.

Maintain a healthy diet: Eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoid sugary and starchy foods, as these can promote the growth of bacteria and increase the risk of gum disease.
