My gums bleed when I floss, Is this normal ?

Generally, the gums can bleed a little when flossing. If you have not flossed for a long time, the chances are when you start doing it the gums may bleed a lot. In that case continue doing it, the more you do it the gums will get healthier and will bleed less.

Ask Your Dentist About Your Flossing Technique

If you are not sure about the flossing technique, ask your dentist in Armidale to demonstrate this for you. Using the wrong technique will result in the floss cutting the gums causing pain and that is the reason why most people quit flossing their teeth. Flossing the teeth consistently reduce occurrence of decay in between teeth and loss of bone in between teeth due to gum disease.
