You might be concerned if you notice a bit of blood when flossing. While this could be completely normal, there can be other instances when blood signals a more serious issue with your teeth or gums. What does the average dentist have to say?
– Those who have just begun to floss could initially irritate their gums.
– Flossing incorrectly could cause your gums to bleed.
– It is best to floss vertically (up and down) as opposed to side-to-side.
“You shouldn’t bleed when you floss unless it’s your first time flossing in a long time. ”
