I consulted to a Dentist and he said I am suffering through Gingivitis. He just cleaned my teeth and gums and while doing it, he said my gums are clean and he don't see any reason for its cause. My gums still bleed while brushing and sometimes when I wake up.

It will continue for few days aftr cleaning if your gingiva had too mch inflammation not to worry. Use mouth wash regularly and keep your oral cavity clean.
Mr. lybrate-userif bleeding is continuing after scaling consult your dentist again. There is some gumpaints and mouthwash which you can use. And multivitamin too. Use daily luke warm saline gargle two times a day (halke gungune water m zara sa salt mila k gargle kre)
It's because your gums are weak. You need to massage your gums for 2 mins after your brushing gently. If you do this 2wice a day you will get rid of this bleeding. You can even ask your dentist for a Med which is to be applied on the gums so the bleed will stop gradually.
Hi, as you told you have Gingivitis ,stil not yet cleared, GINGIVITIS depending on severity it will take some time to cure, wait for 1 week then see the difference if not you need to visit your dentist then go further investigation like OPG then do futher more treatment.
there can be deposit below your gums.. that is called subgingival deposit..which is not usually visible ... and for which deep cleaning is neesaary.. or a currettage... these are advanced procedure other then cleaning... which is done in routine to keep teeth clean...
Start using an ultra soft tooth brush, brush twice, rinse after every meal, buy hexigel (tube) massage your gums thrice with it; gargle twice ,in the morning and evening. Try to consult a periodontist,
Gums become reddish & swollen mostly due to improper oral hygiene & plaque & calculus deposits on the tooth, it can be correctly diagnosed only on proper oral examination, so visit a dentist, because as per the condition the treatment plan will vary, if it is because of the deposits then you can undergo scaling & cleaning procedure.
Hello, get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily. Maintain proper brushing technique. Floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.
