Could you have gum disease?
Healthy gums don’t bleed, so if you see blood when you brush or floss your teeth, it could be a sign that you are developing gum disease.
Gum disease or gingivitis affects at least 50% of adults. It can cause bad breath and red, swollen and bleeding gums. If left untreated it can lead to receding gums and eventually tooth loss. That’s why it’s important to find effective ways to stop gum disease in its tracks.
