teeth, health, smile, dentistBleeding gums are a symptom of gum disease, but they can also be other reasons behind it.

Key takeaways:

– Taking some medications that may cause inflammation and dry mouth, which can also lead to bleeding.

To be on the safe side, talk to your dentist if you notice that your gums bleed.
