Bleeding Gums

By - Bad Breath Expert

What are the Causes of Bleeding Gums?

Bleeding gums can be one of the earliest symptoms of gum disease.  Bleeding gums are commonly caused by plaque formation at the gum line. Plaque is a clear, sticky substance that contains damaging bacteria.In the presence of certain sulfur compounds, these bacteria can penetrate your gum line where they cause gum tissues to break down, bleed and become infected.   

Left unchecked, plaque formation will eventually cause a condition characterized by red, swollen and inflamed gums. This condition is known as gingivitis and it is the first stage of gum disease.

If plaque is not removed in time by regular brushing it will harden into tartar – and once it becomes tartar it can’t be removed by brushing anymore. It must be removed with specialized dental instruments. Furthermore, if tartar is not dealt with in time it can lead to the second, more serious stage of gum disease known as periodontitis.

Not only can gum disease eventually require oral surgery to correct, research has proven a connection between gum disease and an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.

So, you can see that bleeding gums are not to be taken lightly. However, I’ve always been amazed at how complacent people are when it comes to bleeding gums. They go on, day after day, spitting blood into the sink as they brush their teeth, not giving it a second thought. Let me ask you, if your eyes started to bleed – or if blood began to trickle out of your ears – would you not rush to the doctor? Of course you would. Well, bleeding gums is no less serious. It is a sign that something is wrong.

The good news is that bleeding gums and even gingivitis can be reversed.

How to Cure Bleeding Gums

A ground-breaking study in the Journal of Periodontology (November 2002) proved that having bad breath is one of the building blocks of gum disease.  Let me explain…

Bad breath is due to smelly, sulfur compounds produced as waste by anaerobic bacteria in your mouth. These smelly sulfur compounds not only make your breath smell bad – they also allow the bacteria which exist in plaque to penetrate below your gum line and cause your gums to bleed.

Therefore, if you can destroy the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath, you can prevent the bacteria in plaque from attacking your gum tissue and you can begin to cure bleeding gums.

The way to destroy the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath is by subjecting them to oxygenating compounds. You see, anaerobic literally means “living without air”. The bacteria that cause bad breath by producing smelly sulfur compounds cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.

TheraBreath PerioTherapy combines potent oxygenating compounds with premium grade ingredients to instantly destroy the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath and heal damaged gum tissue.

Why PerioTherapy Works So Well to Cure Bleeding Gums

PeriO2 - The active, oxygenating ingredient in PerioTherapy releases potent oxygen molecules that instantly eliminate bad breath bacteria safely and effectively.

Whole Leaf Aloe Vera-This natural, miracle plant has been used to stop bleeding and as a natural healing agent for thousands of years. PerioTherapy contains the highest grade of whole leaf aloe vera available to heal damaged gum tissue and stop bleeding gums.

Tea Tree Oil - This is one of nature’s most powerful anti-bacterial agents. Properly formulated tea tree oil has been used in many cases as an anti-bacterial agent, when even the strongest antibiotics have failed. Our pharmaceutical grade tea tree oil helps to eliminate the bacteria that cause gum damage and initiates a healing in inflamed, bleeding gums.
Zinc Gluconate- Zinc is another natural enemy of bacteria. The Zinc used in PerioTherapy is pleasant tasting and does not burn the inside of your mouth like other forms of Zinc do. Furthermore, Zinc Gluconate is such an effective ant-bacterial that it is used in many common cold medications .

Fluoride- We have added sodium fluoride to PerioTherapy because it stops the tooth decay process and also helps to desensitize teeth with root exposure, a common symptom of gum disease.
