Real Talk: Dental Essentials for Bleeding Gums

2017 was a rough year for my gums. Despite brushing twice a day and flossing every night, I still spent the year flirting with gingivitis. Every single time I reached for the floss - BAM. Blood.

Adulting is super fun.

It wasn't until I switched dentists towards the end of the year that I was introduced to my two gum saving dental essentials. I know I'm not the only one with gum issues. In fact, apparently half the American population have periodontal disease.

So on that note - let me break down the two dental essentials you need to prevent bleeding gums!



The best toothpaste for bleeding gums.

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease and is incredibly common. Irritation, redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gums are all signs of gingivitis.

Gingivitis is no joke. And I've definitely had it.

My new dentist recommended I switch over to a toothpaste made especially to treat early signs of gingivitis. Introducing my BFF Parodontax.

Parodontax removes the plaque that causes bleeding gums. Gingivitis be gone!

It's also packed with fluoride which I'm allll about because that means strong, healthy teeth.


The best toothbrush for bleeding gums....or just ever.

Okay this is where I get very excited.

And yes - I'm getting very excited about a toothbrush. I really never thought this day would come.

Seriously the Nimbus toothbrush is life changing. LIFE. CHANGING.

Nimbus toothbrushes have extra fine bristles on the very top of the brush that gently slip up under the gums to get out all the nastiness hiding away. Seriously, it's genius. I don't know why other toothbrush brands haven't hopped on this bandwagon.


And just to spice this post up even more, this week I decided to team up with some of my favorite bloggers and bring you an amazing giveaway! One lucky reader will win a $575 gift card to Amazon - and yes, all my dental essentials can be found on Amazon! That's a lot of toothpaste.

  1. Only toothpaste I like to use because I also get bleeding gums. I like to use mouth wash also meant for healthy gums. I need to look into toothbrushes meant for this.
