Bleeding After Brushing? See Your Dentist

Bleeding gums after you’ve brushed your teeth should lead you to ask a couple of questions. Did you brush or floss particularly hard—hard enough to cut your gums? If yes, be more careful next time. If no, move on to the next question: when was your last dental examination? If it’s further in the past than you’ll care to admit, you may have discovered the reason for your bleeding gums.
