What causes bleeding tongue each and everytime i brush.Theres a sore on my tongue now.Please Help!

Get checked soon

Sore
You should not have a bleeding sore on your tongue. While it could be as simple as you having bit the tongue or a canker sore, there are some more serious conditions that would be better treated sooner than later. In the past we used to worry about tongue cancer in older male drinkers/smokers, there is a HPV-related type that also affects otherwise young healthy people. Good luck.

I woke up with my tongue split down the middle and bleeding for no apparent reason, What would cause this? How should I stop the bleeding?

Tongue Ring?

Tongue
Tongue Rings can do this - they are dangerous in many ways. If it is not a tongue ring, then this is not normal, have a Dentist take a look at it.

Dr. Paul Brand answered:

Giant Cell Arteritis / Vasculitis / Artery Inflammation - could this cause gum bleeding, mouth sores and lesions on tongue as well as lesions on skin?

It depends.....

Erysipelas
Without knowing your dental status (your periodontal [gum & bone] health, any untreated dental conditions), it would be very difficult to relate these symptoms to your arteritis/vasculitis condition. Gum bleeding is the first symptom of gum disease (gingivitis/periodontitis), mouth and tongue sores/lesions can be due to a multitude of causes. See your dentist and your medical care provider.

I woke up with a bleeding tongue whose blood had more or less dried out and blood in my throat. What are the possible conditions that could cause this?

Bit tongue

Neck-throat
Most likely you bit your tongue while you slept. If it continues see a dentist. You may have a broken tooth that is rough and rubbing on the tongue. Another cause could be a piercing that got caught between your teeth. If there is no dental reason than see your primary care Dr. to rule out any systemic causes or allergic reactions.

Can gingivitis cause bleeding gums? When I brush my teeth, and sometimes even if I just put pressure on my upper gums with my tongue, they bleed. What could be causing this? .

Yes

Gum_biopsy
Gingivitis causes your gums to bleed. You need professional care with a dentist for cleaning and flossing lessons to add to your brushing regimen,

I bit the tip of my tongue hard and was bleeding as I was falling into a deep sleep, what could of caused this?

Tongue biting

Falling_backwards
How did you know you were falling into a deep sleep? If you were aware of it then you weren't in a deep sleep. Do you dream? This is a really foolish question. What causes you to do anything?

Stop Bleeding Tongue. On Blood Thinners?

See your doc

Blood
See your doc or nurse that manages your blood thinners. A tongue will stop bleeding on its own usually. Your blood may be too thin and can be dangerous. A tea bag can help, as well as direct pressure with gauze, but i can't stress enough to see your doc.

Can a styptic pencil be used on bleeding tongue?

Yes

Bleeding
As long as the cut is not large, you can use it. It wont taste good at all, and may not work well due to the washing effect of your saliva. If the cut is large, skip the pencil and see a medical professional.

I have cut on tongue which is not healing not bleeding?

tongue lesion

Tongue
You should see an ENT doctor to examine the lesion and your dentition. A persistent ulcer on tongue should be biopsied to r/o malignancy and this can be done at the office.
