I have been having bleeding gums for two weeks while brushing my teeth, and today there was bleeding a few hours later. What could this indicate? Are there any medications necessary to help? Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your query and attachment (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). From the attachment it is noticable that there is gingival inflammation and localized periodontitis. In a particular area there is recession and inflammation of periodontal ligament and gums.Cause for swelling of gums is the accumulation of plaque and that leads to microorganism to harbour in that area. So that causes infection and inflammation in the gingiva. The main reason for plaque formation is improper cleaning of teeth that leads to accumulation of food and over the period of time leads to formation of plaque. The bleeding gums can be treated and minimised by maintaining proper oral hygiene.
Further I need to know few more details.
Kindly get back with the above details for further discussion.
Thanks for the reply.
I do not have any systemic diseases such as diabetes or blood pressure. It usually stops once I am finished brushing, but today one spot was bleeding even after that. They do not bleed while eating, and there is no pus accumulation in the gums either. Please help.

From your explanation mostly your bleeding problem is because of gingivitis and localized periodontitis. Visit your dentist for a clinical examination.
For further discussion, you are welcome.
