It means you have developed gums disease. Bleeding from gums is the 1st sign of gums disease. Kindly consult a dentist asap what you need as a treatment planning routine cleaning followed by advanced procedure if required till then you can start using dantkanti toothpaste with hexidine mouthwash twice daily make sure mouthwash you shld dilute it with water and rinse with it after every meals.

gum is more important for the tooth to be strong.. don't forget to massage your gums using finger while brushing.. avoid sticky foods to reduce plaque formation which leads to calculus deposit and gingivitis..every 6 months visit a dentist and undergo scaling if needed..

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Sensitive Teeth

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you? Does brushing or flossing make you cry out occasionally? If so, you may have sensitive teeth.
Possible causes include:
• Tooth decay (cavities)
• Fractured teeth
• Worn fillings
• Gum disease
• Worn tooth enamel
• Exposed tooth root
In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns (the part above the gum line )of your teeth. Under the gum line a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin.
Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity.
Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments:
• Desensitizing toothpaste. This contains compounds that help block transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve, and usually requires several applications before the sensitivity is reduced.
• Fluoride gel. An in-office technique which strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations.
• A crown, inlay or bonding. These may be used to correct a flaw or decay that results in sensitivity.
• Surgical gum graft. If gum tissue has been lost from the root, this will protect the root and reduce sensitivity.
• Root canal. If sensitivity is severe and persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your dentist may recommend this treatment to eliminate the problem.
Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your daily oral hygiene routine or concerns about tooth sensitivity.

Get scaling done for plaque or tartar removal. That layer is plaque deposition. It will harm outer enamel layer and will cause sensitivity and gum disease. Plaque also causes bad smell. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash for 15 days. Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after each meal.

All About Different Types of Gum Disease

FWFO, MDS - Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopaedics, BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Gum disease begins with the growth of bacteria in your mouth and it may end with loss of teeth. Thus, the severity of gum disease or periodontitis should not be underestimated. Tooth loss mainly happens due to the destruction of the tissue which surrounds the teeth.

Types of gum disease
1. Gingivitis
Gingivitis is basically the first stage of periodontitis. It causes bleeding from the gums and also causes immense pain in the teeth.
2. Periodontitis
In periodontitis, the gum and teeth separate. A gap is formed between the two which may cause debris to accumulate in the space and cause other infections.

Causes of gum disease
The exact cause of gum disease is not known but here are some of the possible causes:
1. Hormonal changes
Hormonal changes during pregnancy, menopause and puberty are just some times the gums become more sensitive and gingivitis develops.
2. Illnesses
Cancer, hiv, diabetes and other illnesses may cause problems with the immune system and damage the gums. This is an example of how gingivitis is caused as a complication of other disorders.
3. Bad habits
Smoking causes gum disease as you may already know.
4. Poor oral hygiene
Not brushing and flossing may lead to accumulation of food materials in the mouth causing gum diseases.
5. Family history
Family history is also a major contributing factor to what may cause gum disease.

Treatment
The treatment prescribed for gum disease depends how deep it is set and whether it is a case of gingivitis or periodontitis. Here are the possible treatments for gum disease:
1. Professional dental cleaning
This is the most common treatment used in the early stages of gum disease. In fact, dental cleanings are usually used to prevent it and are used as soon as tartar and plaque buildup.
2. Scaling and root planing
This is also a type of cleaning except that it needs to be done under a local anesthetic as there is a certain degree of pain involved in the procedure.
3. Surgery
Surgery is also sometimes used to remove the infected pockets and put the gums back in their original place.

Your son is suffering from extensive tooth decay n requires rct or removal of that tooth not just for stability n space maintaince for permanent tooth but also to prevent spread of infection from dead nerve to the growing permanent tooth below it. Medicines cannot heal the extensive damage n he needs rct for saving that tooth n preventing other dental probs in future. Worry not n go ahead with the rct. Regards.

Discoloration of the teeth can be prevented by munching on foods like pears, apples, carrots or celery afterbrushing, as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in teeth whitening.
