How to stop bleeding gums?

Bleeding gums can be a sign of periodontal disease which is the inflammation of the gums and the alveolar bone surrounding teeth. If periodontal disease is not treated properly, it can lead to tooth loss, and can also harm other organs of the body because the mouth is a doorway to many bacterial infections.

Here are a few tips to stop having bleeding gums:

  • Improve daily oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.
  • Rinse your mouth with salted water.
  • Lightly brush your teeth with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and sodium bicarbonate.
  • Have regular professional cleanings and scaling of your teeth.
  • Going for a dental check-up is the only way to know how advanced periodontal disease is, and your dentist can advise you if you need further treatments.
