My gums bleed when I brush my teeth She’s in her mid-20s
Q: She’s in her mid-20s. My gums bleed when I brush my teeth. I looked in the mirror and found a hole in my gums between my teeth. That’s where the blood comes out. I wonder if my gums are damaged because I brushed my teeth too hard or if it’s because of other symptoms.
A: If your gums bleed while brushing your teeth, chances are high that you have gingivitis (gum inflammation). It is not desirable to neglect brushing your teeth just because you bleed. You have to brush your teeth harder with the right brush. Please visit the nearest dentist for scaling, dental disease treatment, etc.
