Causes of gingival bleeding
Bleeding gums point to presence of the inflammation at the site of bleeding. The reason of bleeding is the migration of blood cells from the vascular lumen to the dental tissues (extravasation) due to the inflammatory impairment of vascularization and vascular structure that supply blood – nutrients – to the gums.
How is gingival bleeding treated?
If the disease is confined to the gums or if it has not involved the bone beneath the gum, a good care and oral hygiene will solve the problem. If it spread to the tissues under the gum, these areas need to be cleaned by a dentist, and diseased tissues must be made healthy.
