How to Treat Bleeding Gums at Home (2019)

Hi everybody out there, I’m Dr. Joe
Nemeth I’m a periodontist in Southfield Michigan I want to talk a little bit
about bleeding gums today. Bleeding gums are never normal. It’s never normal to
have bleeding gums. You think well everybody’s gums bleed when they floss
sometimes or when they brush sometimes, no, your gums shouldn’t bleed.
They only bleed if they’re not healthy that means you have an infection or
inflammation that’s causing those gums to bleed. So bleeding gums are never
normal sometimes you can improve them at home which we can tell you a little bit
more about. So gum disease of course is the number one cause, or periodontal
disease is the number one cause of bleeding gums. Now some people have
certain systemic diseases for instance leukemia
I’ve seen cases of leukemia where the gums do tend to bleed much more easily.
Certain kinds of cancers possibly might increase the tendency for bleeding gums
but the main cause ninety-nine point whatever percentage of the time is
infection in the gums that you don’t feel that you don’t see that you don’t
even know is there but causing a chronic inflammation, the bleeding, the infection
which then leads to bone loss and possibly eventually tooth loss as well
as compromising your general health. Bleeding gums have to be stopped.
Hello my name is a Amar Katranji. I’m a periodontist here in Southfield Michigan.
Today I want to talk a little bit about bleeding gums and what you can do at
home to help treat them. A lot of people ask you know I notice a lot more
bleeding when I’m brushing and flossing a lot of times what you’re seeing is
more plaque is creating swelling around the gum tissue. You really have to do a
good job of removing the plaque in between your teeth and especially the
stuff that’s between your gums the first thing that you have to do is you have to
do a really good job at home with your home care so brushing and flossing is
critical and doing it properly is critical to eliminating the inflammation
that causes the bleeding in your gums. So good brushing
habits, good flossing habits is the first place you can start. Now you can also use
stuff at home like salt and baking soda if you mix that up you can either put a
little bit of a concoction right on a toothbrush and brush it around your
teeth and your gums that can help reduce the swelling that you have around your
gums and that can also reduce the bleeding that you’ll see. Another thing
that you can use is hydrogen peroxide and rinses with hydrogen peroxide. What
that does is it increases the amount of oxygen in your mouth and helps reduce
the overall swelling that you have so that’s another option that you can do at
home and finally what we really like to see is if you continue to see these
things coming in and seeing a periodontist to help treat you
professionally if you continue to see the bleeding. So you may be able to treat
your bleeding gums at home, that’s possible but sometimes that can’t be
done or if you can’t do it we treat it here and how do we treat it well we take
a slide we take a sample from under your gum to see what organisms are there to
see the parasites to see the bacteria that are contributing or causing the
bleeding gums. We then eliminate those our treatment eliminates those bacteria
when we eliminate those organisms the gum bleeding the inflammation stops the
bleeding stops your mouth gets healthier and your body gets healthier because if
I told you all of the systemic diseases that general diseases that are increased
by having gum disease you would be amazed. I call it the other silent killer,
and the goal is to eliminate all bleeding if you can do it with your home
care great if not that’s what we do here. Our goal is to eliminate all infection
and never have any bleeding gums which is a cardinal sign of gum disease. So
have a healthy mouth, you’ll have a healthier body and have a great day!

  1. Hi, how many times for day and week can I use the peroxide or the baking soda?
    Can I use baking soda continuosly?
    I do not have bleeding gums, but these 2 methods can be use to clean the breath.

  2. Is this bacteria contagious by the way? What about trench mouth , any advice or tips on that? Also notice my bottom gums are greyish, why is that? What can be done about it?

  3. Hi,

    I havent gone to the dentist for 2 years and i have started to see blood quite regularly when brushing my teeth and my gums are receeding, im struggling to find a dentist that is taking on patients as im from the UK on the NHS. What other professionals could i see to get my teeth sorted ?

  4. my teeth has no prolem but without reason its bleeding a lot? im eating or not..tired or not just there is a blood i know if i taste blood its means its bleeding sometimes 3 times a day..i just put tissue to avoid tasting it.

  5. Is der any risk for heart patients for extraction of teeth which is already treated with root canal tratement before 2 years….

  6. Wrongggggg. Let's say for example one has sensitive teeth. They use a toothpaste like Toms, one with a specific ingredient(forgot the exact name) that can irritate the gums. An otherwise healthy pair of gums might shed a tear drop from that area. That DOES NOT mean they have first stage of gingivitis. Now, if every time you're using sensodyne toothpaste and when you brush your teeth, your gums start bleeding, yes, than you can discuss potential problems.
    The other area you didn't talk about was when using hard brissled vs soft or electric toothbrushes. SOmetimes people are sensitive to electric which causes slight bleeding if they brush too hard.

  7. sir; im in terrible with my teeth & bleeding gum & pain 4 days i eat tooth pain relief tablet. now my teeth pain small amount stop. im now comfort feel but. what should i do..sir

  8. I'm scared now…..when I heard him say disease or infection, that scared the pee out of me

  9. Hello! So for some reason I got braces at age 8-10 and my teeth have moved since then ? my guys have always bled despite Using floss to get under the permanent braces. I’ve also had surgery at age 14 to transplant gums from the roof of my mouth to go in front of my anterior bottom teeth since my gums reversed so far back.

    I just now got a waterpik and my gums have started to bleed less but are still bleeding. After how long of using the waterpik, brushing twice daily and using H2O2 & mouthwash daily do you think the bleeding will finally stop? Thank you!!!!

  10. Im scared, I don’t know whether it’s working but I use peroxide and baking soda I don’t know if it’s working I also use mi paste for plaque I’m really scared please help


  12. hey guys i need help… recently my gums been bleeding like crazy like i always have bad breathe smelling like blood every morning even when i eat it seems bloody.. anyone know why? i was born with two extra teeth behind my actual teeth my actually nervous because i always had a good smile but my gumms been bleeding like crazy lately

  13. After recently being told I had gum disease I did research and found flossing with a waterpik and xylitol is helpful in preventing the bacteria buildup that causes plaque and tarter which eventually lead to gum disease. Alcohol(Listerine) kills the good bacteria in the mouth making the problem WORSE! You're better off rinsing with plain water and chewing dental probiotics. Try the Weltip!

  14. I haven't been to the dentist in 20 years. Surprisingly my teeth had been in pretty good shape until 5 years ago. I'm so scared and embarrassed to go to the dentist. A few teeth are rotting and I know I have gingivitis. I can't muster up the courage to go, for fear of judgement. ?

  15. I dont know whats happening on back of my gum near the throat my gums is like removing from the teeth and it really is painful

  16. Hi I’m from Michigan and this helped me a lot, I currently have braces on and that make it soooo much harder to brush. This has led to gum damage. I got really considered when I noticed that the gums around my 2 front teeth where rapidly receding. This video helped a lot and I’m on my way home rn to try the salt and baking soda.

  17. "how often do you brush, Ralph?"
    "three times a day, sir."
    "why must you turn my office into a house of lies?"

  18. I appreciate this video! I don't have insurance so I try taking care of my teeth as much as I can but I do bleed so hopefully these home remedies will work wonders for me!

  19. first of all thanks for nice information. I had encountered with bleeding problem long period of time even though I went to the doctored many times but only they did cleaned up my gum but after all same as before then I took some antibiotic that’s help me to controlled my problem but unfortunately one of my front tooth was bit of came further.after that bleeding problem I felt weaning on my tooth.while I am chewing n drinking hot product I felt a kind of difficult. is it possible to bring back same healthy tooth?

  20. If you use a floss do you need to use interdental brushes too?And what about this chlorhexidine gel?Wont it help kill the bacteria?

  21. I wake up every day with blood in my mouth and can see my top gum bleeding this started to happen lately any idea? I brush every day but still

  22. You can buy parodontax toothpaste it's for bleeding gums to help strengthen your teeth gums all that good stuff

  23. I have red gums in the upper right part of my gums and it stings really bad whenever I move my mouth or eat. I haven’t brushed in about 3-4 months. Can it be treated at home or should I go to the dentist? I’m kinda scared cuz my wisdom teeth are coming in and I don’t want them to hurt more than they have to.

  24. Here's a random yet simple question. I'm a mouth breather so could the bacteria in the air be the cause of this? Even if it may be not one of those more worse. conditions

  25. Do you need a referral from a regular family dentist to see a periodontist? I'm in the southern US.

  26. I brush my teeth and floss.. my gum don't bleed… But one of the dentist I went to said I have gum disease is that possible? My gum never swollen and Everytime I brush there no blood coming out.. I am really confused..

  27. I just started flossing again and it seems to be that when ever I stop flossing for a few weeks my gums bleed but within 1-3 times of flossing they stop bleeding

  28. I only started to bleed from a small part of my gum and I was brushing aggressively as I only just used a manual tooth brush for the first time. Can anyone help?

  29. Shame on you!! Are you FAILING to allow healthy mouths by equipping patients to recognise that the mouth is automatically healthy by brushing in a way that imitates the normal chewing motion. Purely up and down – think chewing !!!1

  30. I just had it for the first time,but i accidentally brushed my gums with my toothbrush so maybe thats why they bled? I experienced it only on my lower teeth and my gums look fine so what should i do?

  31. I found out I have periodontal disease a few weeks ago, still looking to improve my home care. Is therabreath a good mouthwash? Also not sure if it's better to floss during the morning, night or both. So far what I've been doing is brushing 3 times a day(morning, evening and just before bed), flossing in the morning and mouth wash in the morning.

  32. Everyday I brush my teeth my gums bleed 🙁 but I do amoxicillin but isn't helped and it's getting worse! Helppp

  33. How long should it take for this irritation to go away? (I have braces on) I am flossing with the water floser after every meal. I am using an interdental floser after after every meal. Then I am brushing my teeth after every meal, and using mouthwash 2 times per day. I am also using your salt and baking soda method once per day. I have this red irritation on my gum by this one tooth, how long should it take to go away?

  34. My gums bleed alot, but my gums aren't swollen, even when i was a kid with prefect teeth and gums they still bleed a little while brushing, im 43 now and i still have all of my teeth except one, im not convinced

  35. When I was a fuckin kid, a dentist made my gums bleed during a cleaning and didn’t react whatsoever. When I asked her why they were bleeding she said it was completely normal. Why the fuck is that? I assume that a professional would know what they are talking about especially being a kid at the time, so any time they bleed after that would be normal too? And then the bleeding becomes excessive and that’s normal too? I don’t understand how someone would a PHD would misinform any patient at all. I still don’t get it to this day. Stay safe my friends and do your own research please. Educate urself before u take anyone’s word in anything.

  36. Parasites???I'm itching even more thinking about it! I was creeped out earlier imagining what was going on inside my gum to make that tingling &throbbing pain happen&now this????

  37. I find this bad breath treatment method "Halitosis Pack" from Planet Ayurveda really amazing. I read every little thing front to back and it`s truly incredible. I did not know the cause of my terrible breath. After following "Halitosis Pack" from Planet Ayurveda this process, now I do not just know why it is happening, but how to resolve it also. I have been doing everything with this guide, my breath hasn`t ever been much better.
