I brush my teeth everyday. I never miss a day. Lately, I've been noticing lots of blood when I got to spit after I'm finished brushing. I've never had this problem before and it seems that its only getting worst. My gums aren't sore, they aren't red and they don't bleed unless its when I brush. I also use a soft bristle brush, so what could be the problem? Is it something to worry about?
Bleeding from the gums can be due to injury, infection, or inflammation of the gums. Bacterial, viral or fungal infections of the gums and teeth produce acids and toxins which can erode and cause inflammation of the gum .It is suggested to avoid hard brushing, hard diets and snacks like chips, sour foods or drinks, hot drinks, carbonated acid drinks, sticky chocolates etc.You may gargle your mouth with warm saline water. Have a well-balanced nutritious diet. See a dentist and get the diagnosis confirmed. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
