Bleeding gums are inflamed or irritated gums that bleed easily. Gum bleeding issues are the most common cause of tooth infections. However, bleeding can be due to other health issues like injury, pregnancy, and inflammation. Gum inflammation also causes swelling and redness. Problems like gum bleeding signify that you are not taking good care of your gums, and they need more attention. Maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine and visiting your dentist nearby are essential to maintain your oral health.
