I could likely answer you the very best, ***** ***** could possibly sens a photo of your teeth and gum area - maybe 2 or 3 pictures. Is that possible? I'll answer you either way, but with picture/s it would be more ideal.
Usually gums can bleed if there is an irritant. Examples of irritants are:
- things in our mouths such as night guards, invisalign, etc. (this happens less often)
- tartar or plaque or both build up or both (this happens quite commonly)
- sometimes some medications cause such bleeding as well
The most likely cause of irritant is the tartar or plaque build up! I don't know if that is your situation without seeing you for an exam or x-rays or anything, but if you've NOT had a Dental cleaning in a while (over 6 months or so), it may be that you (like all of us), may need a cleaning. If so, the cleaning will remove the irritant tartar and/or plaque and then one's gums would not tend to bleed (day or night). Does this make sense?
I see you must have stepped aside for a bit, and that's OK.
I will do so too, but please feel free to respond back when you can and/or if you care to.
I DO want to ascertain you feel your question is answered fully - OK?
