Do your gums bleed? Healthy gums do not bleed. There is a myth that bleeding during brushing is normal, but it is not. It is true that sometimes brushing with excessive force or inadequate oral hygiene technique can cause bleeding, but the most frequent cause is the plaque and/or calculus (tartar) cumulus. You may be suffering from periodontal disease: gingivitis or periodontitis.

In addition to bleeding, you may notice halitosis, cold hypersensitivity, teeth mobility or separation, receding gums and tooth elongation perception.

In case of these symptoms, it is advisable to visit the dentist or periodontist.
