Gums

I am hyper. Was wondering if that could cause my gums to bleed? I floss and do all I am supposed to do, even use listerine. My right side, still stays red and puffy. I have no signs of cavity/infection. Just wondering if its hyper thing or something else...and I should go see the dentist.

Re: Gums

April I know that iron deficiency can cause bleeding gums. Also, if you are low on B12.

Maybe your doctor could help you there. That would probably mean more bloodtests for you.

Take care

Re: Gums

good idea, Betty. I've always had a slight problem with anemia. I didn't know that is associated with bleeding gums.


Thanks!
April
