Gum bleeding, is it really because of the lack of vitamin C in the body?

- Mar 23, 2018 -

Pei Qingxian, chief physician of the Department of Periodontics at the Stomatology Hospital of Peking University, said that this is not true. Under the current standard of living, people are less likely to lack nutrition. Many gingival bleedings indicate inflammation of the gums and are the earliest signs of periodontal disease. .

Many people's gums are not bleeding every day. The reporter learned from the interview that most people did not pay too much attention to it. Does intermittent gingival bleeding require special attention?


Zhao Qingxian said that healthy gums are pink, and the gums and teeth are tightly tied together. When there is periodontal disease, the gums and roots are separated, forming periodontal pockets that may turn from healthy gums to gums. .

Gingivitis only stays in the gingival part of the inflammatory condition, but if you do not care, the periodontium will accumulate a large number of plaque and calculus, and further develop into periodontitis. If it has not been treated in time, the periodontal pockets continue to extend towards the roots, eventually causing the teeth to fall off.

At the same time, doctors also emphasized that for bleeding gums, it does not rule out the possibility of systemic diseases.

Wang Zuomin, chief physician of the Department of Stomatology at Chaoyang Hospital Affiliated to Capital Medical University, said that there are some hidden systemic diseases that are first manifested on the gums, such as leukemia and AIDS. It is still not the same as the gingival bleeding caused by local causes, and the chance is not great. Therefore, after bleeding gums, you should not be too scared, but you mustn’t take it lightly.

For gum bleeding, how can we effectively improve it?

Wang Zuomin said that the most common cause of bleeding gums is plaque. The simplest method is to brush teeth correctly and effectively; if there are plaques on teeth, especially after the symptoms of gum bleeding, regular oral examinations must be performed.
