Bleeding Teeth Due To Braces?
After using my braces, it is easier to bleed. But in the last 3 days, after good sleep, my front teeth always bleed and a little more than the previous one? Is this because the pads made by the doctor on my back teeth to keep the upper and lower teeth from meeting are thin or large?

Additionally, changing or using new pads on braces can cause bleeding in the teeth, which is normal. Usually bleeding occurs for only a few weeks and is not accompanied by other symptoms.
But apart from that the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
side effects of certain drugs
