just wanted to ask for advice, which would be greatly appreciated!
my gums have been bleeding now for 2 years when i brush my teeth. after about a year i got worried so became more vigilant with brushing and flossing. i have now been brushing my teeth comprehensively 2x a day for the past 6 months and flossing once a day for about a month. however, it still bleeds. one notable thing is that its much more likely to bleed when i brush at NIGHT, only occassionally bleeds in the morning. when i floss it bleeds EVERYTIME, almost for every tooth. the bleeding when brushing seems localised to one area of my mouth, the rest seem fine.
i have no bad breath or swollen gums. iv heard after flossing, the bleeding should stop, but its still as evident as ever. thus im very worried that a more serious underlying cause is the reason.
is it possible that gums can bleed (with no swollen gums) for this long and still be cos of gingivitis??? please help!
