Why Are My Gums Bleeding?


Have you ever brushed your teeth and had that almost tinny, iron taste in your mouth because your gums have started to bleed? You are not alone. About 47.2% of the United States has some form of gingivitis, whether it be mild, moderate or severe. While you may not be one of the 64.7 million people with Gingivitis, there is an explanation for your bleeding gums. Let’s take a look at the most popular reasons for bleeding gums today.

Gingivitis: the main cause of bleeding gums is typically early gingivitis. By taking some precautions, you can make sure to avoid this in the future.

Diet: Eating lots of processed foods, including ones that are high in sugar can not only be unhealthy for your body but unhealthy for your teeth as well. Eating fruits, vegetables, and the proper nutrients are crucial to making sure your teeth are in the best shape possible.

Smoking: The toxins from cigarettes create inflammation and decrease the body’s immune response leading to a much higher chance of gum disease.

Family History: 35% of people are born with a higher chance of getting a periodontal disease.

There are, however, a few ways to improve gum health over time. This includes the following:

  • Brushing and flossing twice a day
  • Using an electric toothbrush
  • Avoid tobacco use
  • See the dentist regularly
  • Eat a healthy diet

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
