Hello, thanks for the question.
Bleeding gums can be caused by diseases of the gums or oral cavity itself or due to other diseases. Some things that can cause bleeding gums include plaque buildup in the teeth, tooth infection / gums, due to brushing teeth too hard, hormonal changes, the presence of infectious diseases, or other diseases. Some diseases that can cause bleeding in the gums include:

Flossing (cleaning between teeth using floss or mental floss) incorrectly. Infection of the teeth or gums. Vitamin C deficiency or scurvy disease Blood disorders, such as leukemia, or dengue fever that cause blood platelets / platelets to decrease Hormonal changes during pregnancy. Taking blood thinners. Vitamin K deficiency and others If bleeding gums accompanied by other complaints, or bleeding gums a lot and continuously should consult a doctor. The doctor will examine the patient and carry out some additional tests if necessary, such as blood tests, x-rays, and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the underlying cause. We recommend that you keep your teeth and mouth clean, brush your teeth regularly after eating and before going to bed, avoid foods or drinks that can damage teeth such as sweet and sticky foods, foods that are too hot or too cold, use dental floss or dental floss to clean crevices of teeth , avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol, and do a healthy lifestyle.
