Blood in morning spit
When I woke up in the morning, a few days back my spit was yellow, and had some blood in it. I got dental cleaning done two days back, the early morning spit still contains some amount of blood. Today morning - there was a lot of blood and it seemed to be a little fresh. After spitting the tongue seemed to have a streak of blood in it, which I washed off. No such thing is seen during the day, only morning time. No cough, no cold, no chest pains. Diabetic (on 1g glycomet) - diet under control. Regular practitioner of meditation. Smoking history - but quit 2years back. It's a bit scary - kindly advise

The best bleeding gums treatment is to remove from your teeth the plaque bacteria that causes gum disease. When dental plaque builds up, it turns into tartar, a hard, sticky substance that adheres to your teeth. Without regular teeth cleanings, dental tartar can become a breeding ground for even more plaque, which can creep below the gum line and lead to an infection that causes bleeding gums.So if you notice that you have bleeding gums, see a dentist as soon as you can. Seeking bleeding gums treatment at the first sign of a problem can help reverse gingivitis and help prevent periodontal disease. Other treatment options, such as scaling and root planing procedures, slow down the process of gum disease. If you suffer from an advanced form of periodontal disease, your dentist may recommend ongoing bleeding gums treatment or periodontal therapy. In some cases, dental surgery may be needed to control the bleeding For any more query or treatment visit us today.Dr Ratnika Agarwal , Dental Surgeon/Owner of Smile Up Dental Care & Implant Center ,PUNE.We offer Dental and cosmetic treatments for all age group.

Local cause for bleeding will be deposits around the teeth n cleaning has been done,you can visit dentist again to check whether deep cleaning is necessary.Moreover seems like you need to consult physician also as you told yellow spit,there must be some underlying infection of the lung which has to be ruled out.regards
