10 Effective Remedies for Bleeding Gums

At certain times bleeding from gums can arise from brushing the teeth in a harsh and rough manner. Wearing ill-fitting dentures and improper flossing can also lead to bleeding from gums. But bleeding from gums that appears frequently can be a sign of gum disease or something more serious. It is therefore important to identify the reason behind frequent bleeding from gums. Homeopathic medicines for bleeding gums help manage the swelling, pain, sensitivity, tenderness and pus discharge from the gums wherever present.    homeopathic medicines for bleeding gums

The common gum diseases where bleeding from the gums can arise include gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (serious gum infection). Leukemia (blood cancer), thrombocytopenia (deficiency of cells that aid the clotting of blood) and hemophilia (a disorder in which blood doesn’t clot normally due to lack of blood-clotting proteins) are some of the serious causes of bleeding from the gums. Deficiency of vitamins including vitamin C or vitamin K may also lead to bleeding from gums. Bleeding from gums can also appear during pregnancy due to the sensitivity of the gums that arise from changes of hormones. Taking medicines that thin the blood may also lead to bleeding from the gums.

  7. Lorraine Borgese says:

    My gums are not infected, puffy or red. They are pink and healthy looking. However the right top side (small area) of my gums accumulates blood, especially during the night. I have to suck it out and it bleeds profusely only in that one small area. Then it’s ok for hours but accumulates again. So it’s an ongoing process. This is confusing to me because it doesn’t appear to be an abscess. There is no pain involved. Really worried it may be coming from my head and not my gums. Please help!
