Treatment of Bleeding gums at Innovative Smile Dental Clinic in Bhubaneswar by Dr. Swastik. Early sign of gum disease. Doctors for bleeding gums

If your gums are bleeding, whether occasionally or everyday it may be a sign of early gum disease known as gingivitis. So if treatment is not done it can lead to a advanced form of gum disease known as periodontitis. Symptoms may be red, swollen, irritated gums along with bad breath. At Innovative Smile we have special periodontal doctors who specialize in advanced gum treatment. Consult online for a dental check-up immediately.

We take this advanced gum disease as a dental emergency. Because during this infection the tissues pull away from the tooth and underlying bone. This condition is known as receding gums which can lead to complete tooth loss.

Having regular dental check-ups and professional scaling/polishing known as deep cleaning helps in reversing those gum disease and can save your teeth. So a dental consultation is must to detect the early signs of gingivitis and periodontal gum disease.



Occasionally gums may bleed if we brush too hard or we don’t use soft bristles tooth brush. Acidic foods can cause soreness or blisters inside mouth which can cause your gums to bleed.

Gums which bleed occasionally is not a problem because it will heal automatically. Risk is persistent bleeding due to gum disease. Gingivitis and Periodontisis are two forms of gum disease. They need professional treatment by dentist because in severe form they may cause complete tooth loss.


Identifying the cause of bleeding gums is key to determine the most appropriate treatment. Possible ways to stop the bleeding are

1. Good oral hygiene can prevent bleeding gums. When plaque is buildup along the gum line, cause inflammation and redness of gums. So if you brush or floss enough, the bacteria can spread and cause tooth decay or gum disease.

2. Rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide, used as a disinfectant. It also removes plaque, promote gum health, and stop gum bleeding.

You might keep hydrogen peroxide on hand to use as a disinfectant. Turns out it can also remove plaque, promote gum health, and stop gum bleeding. Rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide after brushing, but don’t swallow the solution.

3. In addition to increase the risk of lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke, smoking is linked to gum disease. Because smoking lower the body’s immune system, making it harder for your body to fight off plaque bacteria.

4. Emotional stress has a negative impact on the immune system. This may result in weakening of the body’s defenses to the point where it can’t fight a gum infection.

5. Eating foods rich in vitamin C can strengthen your immune system and help fight off the gum infections that cause bleeding gums.

6. Taking vitamin K supplement may also alleviate bleeding gums. Vitamin K is an important nutrient because it helps your blood clot. A deficiency can cause easy bleeding.

7. Bleeding gums aren’t always caused by gum disease. Your gums may also bleed from trauma or an injury to the gum tissue. A cold compress applied to the gum line can reduce swelling and restrict blood flow to stop bleeding.

9. Drinking green tea on a daily basis may also reverse periodontal disease and stop bleeding gums. Green tea contains catechin, a natural antioxidant that can lower the body’s inflammatory response to bacteria in the mouth.

10. Because bacteria and inflammation in the mouth causes gum disease, regularly rinsing your mouth with a mixture of warm salt water may also reduce bacteria and stop gum bleeding.


See a dentist if your gum bleeding doesn’t improve within 7 to 10 days. It may need a deep dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar and promote gum healing.
