Free Your Toddlers From Bleeding Gums

As a responsible parent of your kid, you probably have a fair idea by now, of what is and isn't normal for your toddler’s erupting teeth.

But if you find your kid with bleeding gums, then that can be an early sign of your kid’s --

  • poor brushing ways

  • use of a hard-bristled toothbrush

  • biting gums

  • flossing the teeth too hard

  • unhealthy diet routine

  • or even other oral hazards

How can you detect Bleeding Gums?

The gums are the soft tissue lining inside of the mouth. After brushing the tooth if you notice--

  • red swollen gums

  • pink-stained saliva

Then maybe your child is suffering from gum bleeding which is a symptom of

Causes of Bleeding Gums

  • Plaque build-up

  • Gingivitis

  • Dry mouth and gums

  • Injury to the gums

When your kid takes a lot of sugary and starchy foods, bacteria in the mouth feed on the sugar! This later combines with a plaque that develops on gums and teeth. And therefore, it
causes decay, tartar
, and inflamed gum tissue. Inflamed gums usually bleed when they are brushed.
Process of Treatment
At their first appointment--

  • The Pediatric Dentist studies your child’s gums

  • He/she goes through your toddler’s medical history

  • The Pediatric Dentist may also take an X-ray. The dentist may look for pockets around the teeth with a probe as well.

Treatment options will be discussed and the Pediatric Dentist drafts a suitable plan for treatment based on the kind and extent of the issue.
How to Tackle Bleeding Gums?

  • Your kids should brush their teeth twice daily.

  • Use an appropriate toothbrush.

  • Use a soft-bristled, small-headed toothbrush that fits easily in their mouth.

  • You should brush your toddler's teeth if he/she doesn't have the manual control to brush in an apt way.

  • They can also use an electric toothbrush.

  • And they should never skip flossing.

When your kid follows all these the chances of bleeding gums get reduced.

If that doesn’t lessen your toddler's bleeding gums in a week to 10 days, then it is a case of a dental emergency. And you should take your kid to
the dentist without further delay.
