bleeding gum at one tooth

so i have a tooth thats been pushed back from my other teeth, iv been floosing brushing and such and that gum around that tooth will bleed, i just started really taking care of my teeth with brushing 2 maybe 3 times a day, and floosing. now when i apply some suckion (sry spelling) like drinking from a straw it will bleed, i have no idea why, i do have perio and am seeing a dentist in a month, made the apointment. that gum has been bothering me latly too. can someone explain?

Edit.

I just brushed & Flossed....nothing....

can it be just sensitivity? is there any special tooth paste that i can use?

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

funny thing is it JUST started happening too, when i started brushing really well, using floss and mouth wash. what happens is this, when say for instance im sucking on hard candy, if i "suckion" or "suck" too hard, it will bleed.

i started giving that tooth "Special" treatment after this happened, more floss, message tooth brush. might this get better? is there something special i can use other than ordinary tooth paste while i wait for my dentist?

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

I have the same problem. (this is because the dentist screwed up). I am gargling with warm salt water every 2-3 hourse in order to prevent any infection. Try this and may be you will be fine..

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

you should use a soft tooth brush - that's what my perio advised (I'm going through gum surgery for pockets). He gave me GUM ULTRA SOFT BRUSH. I also use proxa brushes for between the teeth, as well as floss. You should be gentle when you're brushing.

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

ahh well it does not just happen with brushing, also when i make extream suckion with my mouth. is there any danger from swallowing small amounts of blood far between?

also the gum in question feels like its being "Poked" from behind with a needle.

Now will the denist give me some kind of antibiotics before they go with the scailing?

Heres a positive update tho.

my gums of my front 4-5 teeth used to be red red red. same as the bottom. since iv been taking extra special care of them the redness is gone and the only redness is around the tooth iv been talkin bout.

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

oh also, i heard this can effect ones whole body health like your heart. now thats after years of abuse and not treating it right? i mean i have prolly had this for not too long, maybe a few months - 1 year (i think less cause i never had reddness and when i had my xrays for extraction, nothing was said)

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

Good for you! try not to irritate the teeth any further- just wait and see what the dentist has to say.. I think you are being too gung ho-just slack off...till you can get there...

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

i think you should just wait until your dental appointment and tell your dentist what you have been telling us. He/she can suggust a toothpaste or prescribe you with something else

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

now lemme ask you somethin, these "pockets" caused by the tarter, will they cause my gums to bleed so easy? will they heal when the tarter is removed?

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

When you don't look after your teeth for a while and then you start brushing and flossing you will have small amount of blood. after you have been doing it for a while they will stop. Keep going through your perio treatment that will help. Mesaging with a soft tooth brush it good, don't be ruff though. Gargeling it also good. Salt water or listerene. You will get better, just give it a little time.

Yes they will cause your gums to bleed and yes they will heal with treatment, that is what the perio treatment is about. Just keep looking after your teeth afterwards too.

Re: bleeding gum at one tooth

my only problem is that it only bleeds when i make a suction in my own mouth, like i am sucking on a straw just with no straw. and it happens at only one tooth, the one that was moved back from alligned with the rest of my teeth
