4 Tips for Treating Bleeding Gums

There are a number of simple steps you can take when it comes to treating bleeding gums – changes to your oral health routine could help stop the problem from becoming more serious. To work effectively, these steps should be followed every day, rather than just on occasions that you notice blood when you spit:

Blue Toothbrush Callout

Use a manual or electric toothbrush

with a small head and soft round bristles, paying particular attention to the gum line.

Pulling Floss Callout

Floss or use interdental brushes

to remove plaque from hard to reach areas, like in between your teeth.

Brushing Pink Toothbrush

Brush your teeth twice daily for at least 2 minutes

with a toothpaste like parodontaxTM. When used twice a day, parodontaxTM is 40% more effective at reducing bleeding gums than a sodium monofluorophosphate toothpaste*.

*after 24 weeks with a professional cleaning

Dentist Tools Callout

Visit your dentist regularly

as your dentist may spot problems with your gums, as well as clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, before you have any symptoms. If you do experience gums bleeding, report it promptly so your dentist can help you treat it before it becomes more serious.
