Hi doctor,

I noticed light bleeding while brushing. I feel minor discomfort in the gums at the centre, top and back of the teeth. I do not have much pain. Can I apply anything externally on the gums to prevent bleeding? Please advice.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You should use Betadine gargle as mouthwash twice daily for 15 days to reduce the swelling of gums and bleeding and also to keep your teeth clean.
  • It would be better if you could go to a dentist for physical evaluation. Ask your dentist to do cleaning of your whole mouth (dental scaling) to remove calculus and plaque from your teeth and gums.
  • Cleaning will reduce the bleeding and helps to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Try to get your mouth clean routinely every six months to get healthy gums.
