Inflamed gums

My gums have been bleeding for almost a month now, while brushing my teeth. Since a week, even when not brushing, slight pressure makes them bleed. And my gums feel numb all the time.

In order of importance you need 1. A thorough dental check up 2. A full mouth xray 3. A thorough scaling (cleaning) 4. Depending on xray findings and post scaling result, a minor gum surgery. Do not delay or you will end up severely compromising your dental health.

Bleeding gums are sign and symptom of gum problem. They would be swelled due to accumulation of plaque and tartar. You require complete dental peofessional clearing known as Scaling. Thereafter maintain good cleaning. You can do like warm saline gargles add this would help in reduction of gym swelling.

Please dont take this issue lightly. Bleeding gums could be a warning sign to periodontitis or an underlying vitamin deficiency. Unfortunately home remedies are not the solution for it. Visit a dentist so that your problem can be treated thoroughly .
