Candy is a good source of food for the bacteria that causes cavities! Please replace them with something healthier, do it gradually and with a positive reinforcement! I'm a mom too, I know it's so hard to do that but if you don't stop her now she will end up having lots of problems in her permanent teeth! Good luck!
Have fun brushing (first flossing) with ur new toothbrush!
1- You irritated you gum by brushing harder than usual!
2- You have not seen your dentist regularly (every 6 months) and plaque is accumulating there that causes gum irritation and thereafter gum bleeding!
3- You are pregnant and due to hormone changes you are experiencing gum bleeding!
4- You have started a new medicine that one of its side effect is gum bleeding!
5- You had something hot, or scratched your gum by something sharp (like chips or hard cracker).
Please contact your dentist if you think none of the above could be the reason.
Please don’t forget that brushing your teeth before going to bed and after waking up even with no toothpaste is better than not brushing at all!
Please be aware that if you have a tartar build up that is irritating your gums, oil pulling does not work! You should visit your dentist at least every 6 months, do a very good flossing and brushing at least twice a day then oil pulling can help your gums getting stronger! So it doesn’t act as brushing or flossing!
If not, please search for an Invisalign provider in your area!
