Why Are My Gums Bleeding?

Here is a list of possible causes.

(HealthDay News) — Bleeding gums may signal gum disease or a more serious medical problem.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says bleeding gums may be caused by:

  • Brushing or flossing your teeth too vigorously or incorrectly.
  • Gum disease.
  • A blood disorder.
  • Periodontitis or gingivitis.
  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy.
  • Dentures that don’t fit properly.
  • An infection of the teeth or gums.
  • Blood-thinning medications.
  • Vitamin deficiency.
