Do you have bleeding gum? It’s the start of toothache. Not just one of those annoying things. Worry about it. Better yet, learn to treat your gum disease now!
You are not alone, thinking bleeding gum is harmless, though.
Most people think this is normal. But seriously, it’s not! Even if it’s widespread. Let’s just get that out of the way.
It’s the start of toothache and possibly, more health problems.
Bleeding gum is a major warning sign from your body that your immune system is under heavy attack!
If you ever experience any of these signs:
• Red, swollen gum
• Bleeding gum when brushing or flossing under normal conditions
• Some blood on your toothbrush or floss after brushing or flossing
I will be blunt – you have a developing case of active gum disease, also called gingivitis at this stage.
This means you are starting to develop active gum disease (gingivitis at this stage).
Bleeding gum is not harmless ! This is your major warning sign that the bad bugs that cause gum disease have gained direct access to your blood system.
Not just that. Those little bugs (look below) can enter into your whole body system!
Listen to your bleeding gum – it’s telling you something worth taking fast action to stop!
But bleeding gum is common. A whopping 90% of adults (over 30) experience it. So most people think it’s normal.
They fail to deal with at the initial first sign of gum redness and bleeding before more damage is done.
What’s the mission of these bad bugs (bacteria)?
Their mission is to invade, colonize and devour the gum and bone tissue in your mouth! No less!
AND, wait for it…… they also contribute to the development of other diseases including diabetes, heart disease and cancer!
It’s more than bad breath and rotting teeth. This can affect your whole health and well-being!
