Question: Hello Dave, I’m a 14-year-old girl and I don’t know what to do with my teeth. Every time I brush them they start to bleed. I’ve had this problem for 1 year now and believe me I’m getting sick of it.
I’ve seen the video on YouTube about that thing that takes all the bacteria out of your gums. I don’t think you can buy those things in stores.
Is there anything else I can do? Thanks for the video on YouTube.
Answer: Hi and thank you for watching my video. Because of your age, I have to ask that you don’t take any action without your parents’ permission, OK?
The first thing to do is to go see a dentist. Have your parents take you, tell them about your problem if they don’t already know. The dentist can give a full, professional asessment of your problem and recommend what to do about it.
One resource I would like for you to tell your parents about is this book. Even though it is primarily geared towards bad breath, you can read what the author has to say on how his bad breath solution made his gums better too. I particularly like the mouth paste (and use it myself). The author describes how to make and use this paste on page 15 of his book. The paste is inexpensive and easy to make.
I’ve had and struggled with something called gum disease that causes bleeding when brushing and flossing. Of course, it causes a lot more damage to our bodies than just a little bleeding. In fact, I’ve written an entire website about it called: Gingivitis Killer .
You can go there and read more about gingivitis and gum disease. There is a lot there, including my own experiences and the exact steps I have personally taken to combat the problem.

I use it in combination with an oxygenated oral rinse:
This kit contains more than just the oral rinse and also has a lot of good information for fighting gum disease and gingivitis. It contains the above oral rinse, special toothpaste and special trays to hold the toothpaste against your gums longer so that it can help them more:

You can also ask your dentist to teach you how to brush or floss better. Sometimes, that can make a big difference!
