Don't get to the point where you end up with bleeding gums. Use prevention with antioxidants as noted in t his info and for me, grape seed extract has been a miracle in this area of my health too.

Well, improper flossing can cause bleeding gums worse than not flossing. Removing plague gently is critical.

Your dentist or hygienist have probably shown you the right way to floss at least a hundred times.

Bleeding gums are caused by irritation from plaque and bacteria that can't be removed by brushing.
If your gums are currently inflamed, they will bleed when you floss, but it isn't the floss's fault...it's the inflammation's fault, and the inflammation is there because you don't floss regularly. Have your teeth professionally cleaned, then start flossing daily and keep it up, and your gums will no longer bleed because they will be healthy again.

I've examined thousands of mouths up close and in detail, and I know that flossing does keep your gums healthy.

Work in a periodontal office for a few years, you'll understand.

Flossing properly takes a bit of practice, but it is certainly a skill that will and does provide a lifetime of benefits.

oldgardener is absolutely correct. To piggyback off of that.....if you have inflammation that is confined strictly to the gums (no bone loss), then that is GINGIVITIS and is completely reversible with good hygiene - usually within a week or so. If the inflammation has spread into the bone and now the bone is being disintegrated, then that is PERIODONTITIS. Periodontitis is NOT reversible - once you have it, you have it forever. The goal of treatment is to STABILIZE it and prevent it from getting worse or relapsing at a later time. What type of treatment is needed depends on the severity of the periodontitis.

Oh I agree with the flossing angle, I do personally, but I believe MORE in antioxidants for the whole body including mouth environment. I have NOT had any signs of blood from my mouth since I don't know when. Yes, I am a huge proponent of antioxidants.

I can't give enough praise to the alternative/holistic world of healing.

I gargle with hydrogen peroxide once a day usually after brushing before bed. I haven't seen the slightest bit of blood in the sink for a really long time.

I improved my gums 100% by using a tooth powder I make myself with main ingredient bentonite clay; then I follow up with a half tsp of Xylitol granules which I let melt in my mouth and swish around. I do floss every day, but my gums are now tight and pink, all pockets have shrunk, and no bleeding whatsoever. I had a lot of problems before I started this regimen, and I was brushing and flossing several times per day. The combo of the clay and the Xylitol leaves my teeth feeling as polished as if I just came from the hygienist!

If "Bleedin' Gums" Murphy (Lisa Simpson's favorite musician) took care of his bleeding gums, would he still be able to use "Bleedin' Gums" as his nom de muse?

In order to prevent bleeding gums:
Eat a Healthier Diet
Brush twice and floss
Quit Smoking
Gum disease and bleeding gums are contagious so stop sharing.
