Brushing Your Teeth Irritates the Gums Causing Bleeding

Gum disease, also referred to as gingivitis, is a non-painful condition of the oral cavity. Pink or red-colored spittle when brushing will indicate the presence of gingivitis.

Key takeaways:

  •       As plaque builds up on the teeth, there is more inflammation in the surrounding gums.
  • Brushing the teeth irritates the gums which causes the bleeding. It is the most recognizable symptom since gingivitis does not cause pain.
  • The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research indicate that gum disease is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

The only way to get rid of or avoid gingivitis is to practice good oral hygiene. You should brush twice a day and floss every night to discourage plaque buildup.
