bleeding gums: part deux

ok, so we established that if your gums bleed when you brush, you should check it out with your dentist.

but if your gums bleed spontaneously and randomly, when you're just sitting and chilling, is it still a dentist issue?

    im not sure, i think your gums can change due to iron defficiency but that might just be the colour of them. have you tried nhs direct?

    Anything mouth related is a dentist's domain. They know quite a lot of stuff you know. :yes:

    You should check it out with your dentist. If it's a gum infection, they may prescribe antibiotics. If it's something outside of their domain, then they'll refer you to the necessary person e.g. a doctor.
