I have bleeding gums and bad breath due to this problem. I doubt its Gingivitis as gums are red and as soon as i even touch them they bleed. Also the gums and teeth are loosing the hold as gums seems squeezing towards base. Please help as I am not sure what to do. I consulted few dentist and they said nothing can be done, just keep your mouth clean.

You have already consulted many dentists but have you undergone any treatment for this problem??? most likely such a clinical presentation usually requires a session of teeth cleaning..... if that has already been done but still gingivitis is not completely cured then a clinical examination needs to be done to rule out any other local or systemic causes.... your brushing technique also needs to be modified to enhance the daily plaque removal..... Regards.....
Hi the maintainence of your oral hygiene is not proper it might be of various reasons like deposits on teeth, hard brushing.. Please visit dentist to know the exact reason for your problem. If it is due to deposits then oral prophylaxis (Scaling) is done or advised to use a soft brush or use a gum paint.
Hi there.. Knowing the problem is half the treatment done so it's a positive factor that you already know your problem. Just maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day n massaging your gums. Get regular check up and cleaning done at the interval of six to eight months. If your gums are loosing their hold then u can get a minor gum surgery done to lift them up again.. Just visit a good dentist in your area.. He /she will be able to guide you depending upon your clinical situation. Just keep one thing in your mind that maintaining a good oral hygiene is the only key to your problems even if you go for a gum surgery. Good luck and keep smiling.
Hello, from your query it is evident that you have already visited few dentists ...If you already undergone oral prophylaxis and scaling still d bleeding ..then the underlying reason can be systemic or the root planing and curettage or flap surgery is required ( since you mentioned loosening of teeth) please approach a Periodontist nearby with a OPG x-ray .can guide u further only if u upload your x-ray.

Hello sir,Reasons of bleeding gums are vary from person to person but I think in your case hard brushing or brushing in wrong way may be a reason .So it is advisable to you that use only soft brush in circular motion. As well as bad breath which you feel is due to bleeding gums. So treatment is for your problem is firstly use soft brush gently ,secondly massage your gums with fingers with tanic acid gum paint which is easily available nearby camist and after that warm saline rinse twice daily is required.For further treatment cosult a qualified Dental Surgeon.
