Why are gums that bleed during dental teeth cleaning not OK?

Find lots more quirky questions and straight answers here.

Gums that are healthy never bleed – not when you brush, not when you floss, not when you have your teeth cleaned at the dental office.

Think about this for a sec:


if you had a wound on your hand that wouldn't stop bleeding, would you ignore it? Obviously not. Because it could get badly infected.

Bleeding gums are the same thing. When your gums bleed you have an infected wound. Bacteria can enter your body through this wound and contribute to serious health problems like heart attack, stroke, Alzheimer's disease and complications for pregnancy and diabetes.

Many people think their gums bleed or hurt when they visit the dentist or dental hygienist because of the instruments used to clean teeth. Uh, uh. It's because the gums are inflamed and when they're touched in areas that aren't normally touched, they may hurt or bleed. This means you may have gum disease. Be sure to ask your dental professional how to treat this.
