What can I do for my two year old's bleeding gums?

What can I do for my two year old's bleeding gums?

Why&when it started?: The larger question is when it started and why. If the child is teething, the problem will resolve with time and good consistent gentle cleaning. Cold teething aids can help. If the gums are bleeding because of food and bacteria, then again, the answer is obvious.

I have a gum bleeding after one year of quitting smoking of 35 years. What can I do before seeing the dentist?

Good oral hygiene: Make sure you are brushing and flossing at least twice a day - best with a mechanical toothbrush and a water irrigation device (like a waterpik). 35 years of smoking has sadly taken its toll on your oral tissues. Consider seeing a dentist as soon as you can. ...Read more

My toothbrush was used to scrub poo off the toilet.Seconds later i brushed my teeth with it. I have bleeding gums.Can you catch hep a from day old poo?

Yuk!: Three issues here. First, who didn't throw the toothbrush out right away? Second, you can catch other things as well from the contaminated toothbrush but i would be overly concerned. Third, if you have bleeding gums you need to see a dentist as that is an indication of periodontal (gum) problems which will only get worse over time. A short term illness gets better, while lost teeth is a lifetime. ...Read more

Tongue: Perhaps you need to clean your tongue....Tooth brushing the tongue is one method, but, using a tongue rake is a more efficient option. Once a day, after you get a head start with more than once a day for a few days in the beginning, will jump start you to better breath. Also keep up your flossing. ...Read more
