I sever from gum bleeding and sometimes swelling . What can I do to have a healthy gum .?

Cleaning ; hand work: Gum bleeding ; swelling are the result of dental plaque (bacteria) not being removed from the teeth/gums. First you need a professional teeth cleaning to remove tartar (calculus) which is sharp/irritating to the gums. Next comes dedicated work by you at home. This is done by proper brushing, flossing, and use of anti-bacterial mouth rinses. Your gums will bleed at first but will stop in few days. ...Read more

What should you do to stop gum bleeding when flossing ?

What should you do to stop gum bleeding when flossing ?

Once you get between the teeth gently go under the gumline to remove any plaque. I like to floss after brushing before rinsing to help push the toothpaste chemicals between the teeth. You can also rinse with warm salt water to help sore gums and keep current with your dental exams. ...Read more
