When it comes to your child you want nothing but the best for them. Be it the school you send them or the food they eat. Yet when it comes to dental hygiene, we tend to think that brushing their teeth once a day with our regular toothpaste would be enough to keep their teeth healthy. What we don’t realize is that a child’s teeth are in a developing stage and their needs are different from ours.
Do you notice a streak of red in your spit after brushing? Does it hurt when you brush? Do you often find yourself not smiling for a picture because your gums are too red and swollen?
If even one of the above is true, chances are that your gums are bleeding. While an occasional bleed is not a cause for concern, if your gums are bleeding consistently, it is not something that you should ignore. Gums would bleed to an infection, pregnancy or simply due to wrong oral hygiene methods. So what could you do if you notice gum bleeding?
