  • There are many causes of irritation of the gums with bleeding. Smoking can be one of the cause but sometimes after some general problem like fever, cold or flue, you can have these sort of problems in the gums. It can be start of initial stage of gingivitis in which bleeding in gums is there but not pain for swelling. With detailed history one can find out the cause. You can do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and try to maintain very good oral hygiene. You can apply some gum paint which is available OTC. If this feeling goes in 2-3 days then it fine otherwise you will have to go to dentist to get the cleaning done. For more on gums diseases you can visit the following link in our website..........
