My gums bleed when I floss!!


Are you Health Conscious! Do you brush your teeth twice a day! Do you floss them regularly! Congratulations! Your chances of getting dental diseases are less than 34% than others. Still shocked! Brushing and flossing alone would not suffice. There might be still many reasons that you could have a dental disease.

Many people have a misconception that they will not get a dental disease if they floss regularly. A recent American survey says that, 35% of the people are still not doing the floss correctly, that it is leading them to a chronic dental disease, as left untreated.

Can we look at various reasons we bleed during flossing?

Poor Oral Hygiene

Do you know that bleeding gums are not a good sign, even when it occasional? People are neither frequently nor effectively flossing the tooth. People often not spend enough time to floss, resulting in unwarranted issues. The other main reason for poor oral hygiene is hereditary. It is highly important to be conscious of your dental hygiene.

Diet Matters

Do you know that the tooth is directly affected by the number of sugars you consume? Your teeth also have a threshold. If you force feeds yourself, then you are knowingly damaging your tooth. Processed foods, junks without nutritional value, will rather damage your immune system, resulting in the poor tooth. Eating nutritional food, in turn, boosts your immune system and helps you to maintain good health.


Smoking is an important reason to have gum disease, as there are many toxins in cigarettes, which create inflammation and decrease the immunity system. Smoking also leads to fibrous and enlarged gums. Even though you floss regularly, smoking will certainly damage the hygiene of your mouth. 


People often ignore the important factor which causes the great damage. Agitation and anxiety cause inflammation in the blood vessels and breaks down the soft tissue in the mouth. This may even delay the healing process in the mouth.


If you have a strong family history of dental problems, you are also likely to suffer out of diseases. You should be really careful, and more prudent when your health is concerned. More than 35% of the population suffer out of hereditary diseases.


People often ignore an important factor, taking medicines for different diseases. Dryness of mouth is one such factor, which causes irritation, lack of saliva and other related problems. This will affect you thoroughly, medicines may lead to cause severe side-effects, which can have a direct impact in the oral health.


Hormones cause enormous changes. Pregnant women often suffer out of severe oral problems, as women are prone to hormonal changes. They should take enormous care during pregnancy, to avoid problems.

 A dentist could be of perfect guidance and support to completely care for your dental problems. Never ignore the slightest symptoms. Many people, even when they floss regularly are likely to have oral diseases for many reasons we discussed here. No chances should be taken, especially when it comes to health and oral care. As the best investment you do is investing in yourself by taking proper care.
