Bleeding after brushing

Hi there,
I was just wondering if it's normal to have bleeding gums after brushing. Probably not but I have been to the dentist for a cleaning and he sort of dismissed it so i don't think i have any gum disease but I am dumbfounded as to why they bleed after I brush. i did notice this after I changed toothbrushes but when I went back to my old one, it still bleeds a bit. Not that much but my spit is red. it stops once I stop brushing but the abrasion is still there. It only seems to be on my top teeth and the lower scissor tooth gum line.

any thoughts thanks

Re: Bleeding after brushing

I would reccomened to you just flossing and using listerine everyday. It just seems to me that you have gingivities, and that it easily reversible. But if you do not tend to it know it will eventually turn in to periodontal disease and you could end up loosing all of yur teeth. Oh, and by the way the bleeding will not stop tomorrow it will gradually slow down and if you keep up the flossing and listerine it should not return. Hope I helped!

Re: Bleeding after brushing

My dentist suggests warm salt water as a rinse - 4 to 5 times a day - instead of anything like Listerine. I brush, floss and salt water rinse morning and night and then rinse several times a day (if I can) with the warm salt water. My gums are very healthy from this. It should take just a short time to return your gums to a good condition. Then keep it up. You'll be extremely glad you take the time.
