How Medications and Checkups Can Help Bleeding Gums

Posted .

Every now and then bleeding gums mean that your gums are just slightly irritated, but other times bloody gums mean that something graver. It’s crucial that you don’t delay in caring for your bloody gums before your disorder turns more serious. Deliberate on the following if you’ve noticed any blood in your gums recently.

Could your medicine be causing your bleeding gums? Some aspirins thin blood, resulting in increased bleeding in the gums and other places. Some prescription medications can cause your gums to bleed. If you have been practicing awesome dental hygiene and your gums started bleeding only recently, it’s likely that a medication is the cause. Let Dr. Thomas Hicks know what medications you’re taking.
