Bleeding gums on my five year old

Monday, Apr. 12th 2010 7:31 PM

My son was brushing his teeth when I notice that his gums were bleeding a little.  I looked at his teeth and his gums seem a little red.  He was just at the dentist about four months ago with a clean bill of  dental health.   I am worried about him having gum disease since I never notice before that his gums where bleeding when he brush.   However, he also could be brushing to hard causing his gums to bleed.  How can I tell the difference?

    I am not sure you can unless you brush and see if it happens to you when you brush his teeth. I think it would be a good idea just to take him in to the dentist for a check up. The dentist could advise you if your son has gum issues or not

    Maybe try a softer brush. I used to bleed sometimes until I switched to a soft bristle.
