Gum disease may be due to a condition called gingivitis or periodontitis. They are usually caused by lack of proper oral hygiene.  Proper brushing technique coupled with good use of dental floss or a water flosser is a must.  First of all you need to visit a dentist for a thorough cleaning (scaling) job.  That has to be followed by better oral hygiene habits and better dietary habits.  Vitamin supplements also help.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre anytime.  God bless u always.

The first suggestion to you would be to visit the dentist as soon as possible to have the correct diagnosis and treatment plan of your concern.....most likely you will be requiring a session of cleaning followed by training on a proper brushing technique.... Regards.....

Bleeding is one of the most common signs of gum disease. Even if your gums are not swollen it is very likely you have active gum disease. Please get yourself checked by a dentist preferably a periodontist to get a line of treatment best suited to your condition.

Hello, The history that you are giving suggests that there are calculus and stain deposits on your teeth. Now no matter how nicely you brush you will have to visit a dentist to get them removed. It is a very simple procedure called scaling in which with the help of ultrasonic vibration these deposits are displaced. You will have a fresh breath and no bleeding once you get them removed and start maintaining your teeth properly. Also request the dentist you visit to teach you the proper brushing and flossing technique. Hope this information will help you. Regards, Dr.Priyanka Benchmark Dental Clinic

Going by the complaints you have mentioned, visit your dentist immediately, now. You need professional care. Home remedies, just do's and dont's doesn't cure your condition. "No pain, so I am fine "-- FALSE in dentistry, absolutely false for gum diseases.

Bleeding gums is not normal. You need scaling/cleaning of your teeh. Also have vitamin c chewable tablet once daily. Scaling of teeth is mandatory every 6 months.
