Gum inflammation. About gingivitis and gums that bleed when you brush your teeth.

When you brush your teeth, many that gums regularly bleed a little bit. Some turn it over with, they probably are a little too hard with the toothbrush. But tooth-flesh does not bleed because you brush too hard. Bleeding may be the first visible signs of gum inflammation (gingivitis). So you should definitely not take a break with the toothbrush, though it bleed.

Why gingivitis?

Why do you get gingivitis? Inflammation of the gums is a reaction to bacteria, which sits stuck in your teeth. Gingivitis occurs because the teeth are not kept sufficiently clean. The bacteria get stuck in the transition between the teeth and gums, and causes the gum to become inflamed. If inflammation is not stopped, it will work its way down along the tooth root and attack the tooth bone, and then you have developed periodontal disease. You can have advanced periodontal disease without even notice it - except for the bleeding by brushing. The dentist checks the gums at the regular session. But remember, nevertheless, to say if the gums are sore or bleed when you brush your teeth.

Impaired Immune System

Impaired immune system. Any form of impaired immune system, the resilience is reduced to the bacteria sitting in the teeth coverings. Consequently there will be more easily inflamed gums. In stressful periods can be more susceptible to gingivitis. The same applies if you are being treated with immunosuppressive drugs.

If you are pregnant

About half of all pregnant women during pregnancy will find that the gums can easily come to bleed, and that it is tender, red and swollen. The problem arises most often in the second month of pregnancy to again slow down in ninth month. Another form of inflammation of the gums can also occur in pregnant women. A single point between two teeth can gums begin to grow very quickly. The swelling will be sore and bleed easily when touched.

There are also a few more rare types of gingivitis with severe swelling, very bad breath and a high tendency to bleeding, which may also be the first sign of more serious diseases. - Click on periodontal disease and loose teeth >>

Chronic gingivitis

Chronic forms of gingivitis. A type of heart medication (calcium antagonists sterne), which are predominantly used for high blood pressure can cause overgrowth of the gums, which complicates a good oral hygiene. Some connective tissue diseases (lichen planus Planus and Benign Slimhindepemp-higoid) can sit in the gums, which typically becomes red, tender and swollen, with a greater tendency to bleed. A tissue sample from the gums will give the answer. A particularly bowel disease (Crohn's disease), can also cause problems with the gingiva. Again, a tissue sample from the gums reveal whether it should be investigated further.

Prevention of gingivitis

What can you do? Gingivitis preventable generally best when the individual is better to remove deposits on the teeth. One can improve his oral hygiene by making the trouble brushing. For example, Colgate's toothpaste 'Sensitive Multi Protection' developed for both sensitive teeth (pain relief) as to prevent tartar and gum problems. Moreover, it gives many example a better oral hygiene by using an electric toothbrush. Despite the excellent brushing, it is impossible to remove all bacterial deposits between the teeth. One should therefore also use toothpicks, small bottles called cleaners (interdental brush) or dental floss.
