Bleeding Gums When Brushing, Why?

If you have been seeing blood on your toothbrush or dental floss, then you are NOT alone. This is a problem that many people experience.

What is the problem? Most likely the problem is due to gingivitis (mild) or the more advanced ‘gum disease’. You will want a periodontist to confirm this for you.

There are a few other possibilities, but most of the time this problem is due to gum disease – again, ask your periodontist to diagnose it for you.

I had this problem and I wrote about my experience at You can read about it there.

Of all of the things that I tried, I believe the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator provided the greatest effect on my gum health. After using it, I returned to the dentist who confirmed I no longer needed the advanced treatment she had previously recommended.

I cannot guarantee that it will work for you, because every human body is different. There are different factors involved for each person, etc.

However, I can tell you that I am not alone in my experience. Because I sell the Hydro Floss at – I have been afforded the opportunity to talk to a lot of people about their experience with the hydro floss. Many have told me stories that are similar to my own.

If you want to talk to me, go over to – the 800 number is at the top of the screen there.

My thoughts are that you should get the book at and then the Hydro Floss at

You might also take a look at essential oils too. But again, the Hydro Floss seemed to do the most good to me.

Again, I cannot promise that what I did will work for you. But I do know that it worked for me and for others too!

Bleeding gums when brushing, flossing or getting regular dental cleanings is a classic sign of gum disease.

You should always be under the care of a periodontist or dentist for this type of a problem.

Best always,
