From time to time bloody gums mean that your gums are slightly irritated, but other times bleeding gums mean that something more serious. It’s important that you don’t delay in caring for your bloody gums before your sickness turns more severe. Consider the following if you’ve observed any blood in your gums recently.

Could your medicine be instigating your bleeding gums? A few aspirins thin blood, resulting in increased bleeding in the gums and other places. A few prescription medicines can also cause your gums to bleed. If you have been practicing great dental hygiene and your gums started bleeding only recently, it’s likely that medication is the cause. Let Dr. Tae Chul Ho know what medicines you’re taking.

Have you come to our office in a while? One of the most important and most powerful ways to avoid bleeding gums is to receive a professional dental cleaning once every half of a year.
