Severe gum bleeding

User Level:

Posted by: speedracer  (8 years ago)
Hi there!

It’s been a year when my dentist removed tartar from my bottom teeth. Everything was fine after that; however, few days later, I observed that my bottom gums bleed. Recently, the bleeding started to become worse, even white toothpaste comes out red as does my toothbrush. I also get a metallic taste in my mouth after brushing and using mouthwash. My appointment with the dentist is by January next year. What should I do in the mean time? I really need an immediate solution to my bleeding gums.

Your problem is caused by plaque collecting on your teeth, right next to the gums. You are missing this when you brush. The best thing you can do is get some disclosing tablets from a pharmacy, some floss,(I recommend Oral B SATIN TAPE) and a decent sonic toothbrush such as an Oral B Pulsonic S15. Use the disclosing tablets to stain the plaque on your teeth. Then you can see where it is. Next, brush your GUMS where the plaque is, really slowly. Count slowly to ten for EACH tooth as you brush. Then you have to do the same for the tooth surfaces on the inside, next to your tongue (lower teeth) and palate (upper teeth). It takes 5 to 6 minutes to brush your teeth and gums properly! After that, you have to clean out the plaque in between your teeth, where a brush doesn't reach. You need to use floss for this.
When you follow this routine for getting the plaque off your teeth and gums, the gum bleeding should settle down within a week. But you have to keep up the routine to stop the plaque building up again!
For more information about this, as well as videos showing you how to brush and floss correctly, take a look at www.dental-health-advice.com/how-to-cure-gum-disease.html

Thanks Dr. Mitchell! That was informative and thorough. I was very worried about the condition of my gums but I could not get an appointment sooner than January. You've been very helpful.:-)

To avoid further discomfort, try brushing with soft bristled tooth brush in the correct manner. Rinsing with salt water or hydrogen peroxide and water would also be fruitful. But do avoid using commercial, alcohol-containing mouthwashes as it can increase the oral problem.

Warm water rinse daily is the best option to use during tooth ache.I would recommend "Glenlake Dental Care", you should go for.They are very efficient and have advance techniques for all our mouth problem.
