Having Bleeding Gums While Pregnant due to Pregnancy Gingivitis

gingivitis and pregnancyPregnancy gingivitis is common.   Of course, if your gums are bleeding while pregnant, see both your doctor and a periodontist.  Make sure it isn't due to something else.

But again, pregnancy gingivitis is quite common.   Gum disease is a problem that most people face anyway, whether they know it or not.   Treating gum disease also accounts for a lot of health care dollars being spent each year.

It's believed that the hormones play a big part in pregnancy gingivitis.  In addition, the fetus is taking a lot of mother's resources to grow.  This makes expecting moms more susceptible to a problem that already affects the majority of people. 

If you recognize that researchers have been finding relationships between gum disease and heart disease, stroke, and preterm,  low birth weight babies, the actual cost of gum disease mounts even higher! 

I wrote a short guide called :  How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Steps.  

In it I talk about proper use of the Hydro Floss, how it can help, and how you can verify that your gums are getting healthier with the help of your dentist or hygienist.

That's the really great part, you can find out if it is working for YOU or not.  And that is the most important part.   In addition, when you order a Hydro Floss at, you can also request a digital copy of my bigger book:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease.  

If you want the physical copy, you can get it separately, or together with a new Hydro Floss.

Why Is Gingivitis A Big Problem?

Answer:  Gingivitis is gum disease.  

gingivitis is gum disease in an early stage
Yes, it is the beginning stage of gum disease and the damage is considered reversible. 

However, gum disease, periodontal disease, gingivitis, stage one periodontal disease, etc  - regardless of the classification, this is the SAME disease process in different stages.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss

= not good.

Most people are completely unaware that they have gum disease. 

That's a bummer because gum disease is bad news.   In fact, about 75% of people, as most dental professionals will say, have gum disease.

It's a problem that has plagued mankind probably since the beginning of our existence.  It causes people to lose teeth.

How Do You Know If You Have Gum Disease?

One of the best and more objective ways you can tell is according to your periodontal pocket depths.
Generally speaking, most dental professionals will say that your gums are healthy if you are at 3mm and below everywhere.

Conversely, most will say your gums are unhealthy when those numbers get above 3mm. 

This is really the best objective guage you have.  It sure beats relying on someone to say that it looks good or bad. 

What Do You Do About It?

This will be the most direct and simplest answer you will hear on this topic.  Most people waste a lot of time and words beating around the bush.

You simply adjust what you do at home until your pocket depths are back to 3mm and below.  Everywhere.  Period.

Most people can achieve this with work and persistence.  The amount of both will vary depending on each person's individual factors.  

One of the top tools that I think you should consider and that I think every family should have is the Hydro Floss.  You can read more about it here. 

Compare your pocket depth readings as measured by your dentist or hygienist on every office visit. 

Sound like a plan?   You heard it here first!

Gum Disease Is An Epidemic That Has Been With Mankind For So Long That Everyone Thinks It Is Normal

gum disease, the quiet epidemic that has plagued mankind for thousands of years
 It really isn't an epidemic technically, because it is accepted as a 'normal' human condition.   

But, really,  with 3 out of every 4 people affected, isn't it one? 
In fact, it might as well be. 

Gum disease causes tooth loss.  If you know you have some, and most people have some, then you should educate yourself and take action.

What you do at home for yourself is the most crucial.   The fight is a daily one that no one is likely to fight for you. 

Knowledge is power.  Keeping your teeth for a lifetime of good service can be majorly impacted by how much you understand and how much action you take daily.

It is not normal, despite that fact that it has been accepted as such for so long.    It is a disease process.  

Don't let it catch you unaware.

Gingivitis And Bleeding Gums - What Are They About?

happy tooth smiles.
Gingivitis is gum disease.  That is the simplest way to put it.   Gingivitis, gum disease and periodontal disease are loosely used to describe different stages of gum disease.  Professionals may have even more classifications such as stage 1 periodontal disease, etc.

The key take away point is that they are all the same disease process in different stages. 

Gingivitis is the most basic and least progressed form of the disease.   In fact, professionals will say that the damage from gingivitis is reversible.  

This is not the case with later stages of the disease.   One can often arrest the progress of the disease at later stages, but the damage remains.  For example,  receded gum line or loose teeth.  With loose teeth, you need to get those looked at by a periodontist right away.

~Loose teeth are not a laughing matter.  You should seek professional help immediately if ANY of your adult teeth are loose.

Bleeding gums are a classic sign of the disease process mentioned above.   Don't ignore gums that bleed.  There are a few other possibilities that your dentist can rule out for you.  But, the most likely cause is gum disease.

You Are Not Alone 

 If your gum bleed, you are not alone.  If you have gum disease of any sort, you are definitely not alone.  Dental pros tell us that about 75% of people have some gum disease.

Without action, this disease can progress.  The progression would, of course,  lead to tissue destruction, bone loss, loose teeth and the final stage would be a tooth falling out.

That's the progression,  but it doesn't have to be that way.  It doesn't always happen that way.  Taking action with your dental professional and at home are very important.

One tool that might help is the Hydro Floss.  

You can read about it here. 

You simply use it correctly,  and let your dentist or hygienist measure the results.  That's how you can confirm if it is working for you or not.

You might have questions,  this is a fascinating topic for me.  I don't mind discussing it with you.    Call at 888-586-6849. ask for David.

Your Gums Should Not Bleed When You Brush Or Floss

your gums should not bleed Bleeding gums are really not normal at all.  Most of the time it is a sign that you have gum disease.  You will need  your periodontist to examine you and give you a diagnosis.

Barring a few other things your periodontist may rule out, the most likely cause is gum disease.  You wouldn't be alone though as 3 out of 4 people, according to dental professionals, have gum disease.

That's 75% of people!  Yet, most people have no idea they have this problem.  On the other hand, I would guess that gum disease accounts for billions of dollars just in costly dental surgeries, gum grafts and dental implants alone!

What You Can Do

I'm going to assume that you have been to the dentist or periodontist and you know you have gum disease.   You will want to work with and under the supervision of your doctor at all times.

One of the key objective indicators of gum disease are your periodontal pocket depths.  Generally speaking your periodontist will consider your gums unhealthy when they are above 3mm.  

Conversely,  most periodontists, generally speaking, would say that your gums are healthy when you have no pocket depths above 3mm.

Therefore, your goal is to get to 3mm and below!

A Relatively Effective Way to Achieve This

Nothing will work 100% of the time for 100% of the people, that is impossible.  But I have something that worked for me personally and many other people too.

That is the HydroFloss oral irrigator.   

What you do with it is use it twice per day with two full reservoirs (place where the water goes) per use for a solid month.   After that, visit your periodontist again and see if your pocket depths have shrunk down.  

If so, simply keep up the routine.   If not, then you have to tweak and alter what you are doing at home until you achieve the desired results - as measured by your periodontist or hygienist.

I tried many things, but in the end it was the Hydro Floss that gave me the results I was looking for.  Now you know the secret to proving whether it will work for you or not too!

Read more about it.

You can talk to me if you have questions about whether this is the right way for your or not.  Call me at 1-888-586-6849 (ask for David). You can also join my skype group for conversation.

Stopping Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are quite often a sign of gum disease.   You will want your dentist to give you a diagnosis and rule out anything else.

Once that is done, you might be faced with the prospect of spending a lot of money to solve this problem.   Unfortunately, gum disease is the number 1 cause of tooth loss.

I advocate working under the care of your periodontist at all times.   Let your Periodontist check your results and verify improvement (if any).

I have a specific methodology to tackle the problem of gum disease.  Since you will be working with your dentist, he can monitor and verify your results.

You can learn about this method by reading  : How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Steps

This is the tool that I discuss in that publication - It is also the one I believe to be the most effective. 


Here is the problem.:  I've been told that 99% of people download these reports and never read them!

I know, that's crazy right?   No one wants to go 50% of the way and then quit.

So,  I know the chances are good that you are not going to read this report - even after it is on your computer!

That's a shame.  Because I  have some valuable things to share.  Perhaps you can save yourself a lot of money and some or all of your teeth?    How much would that be worth.

 Like I said, most people will download the report but never read it.

I allow people to call me and ask questions.  I'm at 1-888-586-6849.  That includes those who don't read the information I suggested, but it would be better if you did! 

For people that don't want to talk on the phone, you can contact me on Skype as well:  just clickthe link below  This is two way communication, you will be able to chat with me and I will chat back.

Here is link to connect on Skype.

I think it would be a good idea to call instead, but I leave the Skype option open for those who aren't ready to talk on the phone.

The purpose of the call or the chat will simply be to figure out what is best for you and whether I have something to share that will align with YOUR goal for  yourself.

If there is an alignment, I'll explain further.

If there is not an alignment, you will walk away with some good / free information that you may find very helpful and good.

In ANY case, if you have bleeding gums, please take action by visiting a periodontist ASAP.

Stop Bleeding Gums And Reduce Your Chances Of Lost Teeth And Expensive Dental Treatments

bleeding gums are not a good sign!  Gums should not bleed with normal brushing or flossing.  

If that is happening to you, there is a good chance that you have gum disease.  You will want to visit your periodontist for a diagnosis. 

Don't worry, you are not alone.  Dental professionals tell us that about 3 out of every 4 people have gum disease.   Bleeding is not always present when there is gum disease.  But many times, it is. 

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss

This is the reason that you want stop it from progressing further.   No one wants to lose a tooth or experience an expensive and potentially painful advanced treatment in an attempt to save the gums and teeth. 

You only have so much bone and tissue supporting the teeth.  Protect it as well as you can.

Objective Measures.

It's difficult for people to just go by someone saying that they do or do not have gum disease.  So here is something objective you can use. 

Generally speaking, periodontal pocket depths of greater than 3mm are considered to be unhealthy by many or most dental professionals.

On the other hand, generally speaking, many or most dentist will say that your gums are healthy when your periodontal pockets are at 3mm and below. 

Who takes these measurements?  Either your dentist or hygienist.   Further more, they can chart these numbers for you and you can compare from visit to visit where  you are at.   This is the way you can tell if what you are doing at home is working or not.

These periodontal pocket depths become important for you to know if you hope to stop the progression of gum disease and get your gums back to a healthy state again.


By using the measurement criteria above, in addition to working with your dentist or hygienist, you can figure out what is working for you.

What has worked for many people, myself included?    It is the Hydro Floss oral irrigator.

Is it the right machine for you?   Maybe.  Very possibly.    But I want to help you make sure and feel comfortable that it IS the right choice for you.   Therefore, you can call me at 1-888-586-6849 for a no obligation conversation.    Don't be shy.  There is too much at stake. 

I'd like to see you keep your teeth!  And I am sure your dentist and hygienist would like to see that as well.

Do You Have Gum Disease? - Video

Do You Have Gum Disease?

I am going to assume that if you are reading this you already know you have gum disease.   After all, why would someone bother to read this if they did not, right?

The sad reality is that MOST people have gum disease.  Dental health professionals tell us that about 75% of people have some right now.   That's 3 out of every 4.

Therefore, if you know you have gum disease, you are not alone.  It's just that most of the other people that have it don't know yet!   They probably won't find out until a tooth becomes loose or it is time for an expensive treatment or surgery.

In a way, you can be glad that you know you have it, because now you can start to do something about it.  Many other people aren't going to find out until things get bad, unfortunately.  That's just the way it seems to work.

One Possible Way To Solve This Problem

Anyone who says they have something that will work 100% of the time for 100% of the people is lying.  You can't trust someone like that.

But, I do know of something that has helped a lot of people.  The best part about it is that you can have your dentist verify your results.

How To Know When It Works

This is the fun part because it is more objective than subjective.   You just need to know your periodontal pocket depths.   This is a measurement that your dentist or hygienist will take around each tooth.

Generally speaking, most dental professionals will say your gums are healthy at 3mm and below and unhealthy at above that mark.   Therefore, you will know your gums are back to a more healthy state when you get all of those readings to 3mm and below.

How To Give This A Shot

The device that I have personally experience with, and thousands of my customers do as well, is the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.      It works rather well for a LOT of people.  You can read about it, and customer reviews as well, at that link.

You simply use your Hydro Floss twice per day with 2 reservoirs per use for a minimum of 1 month.  Then go back to your dentist and find out what your measurements are.   If those readings are headed in the right direction, then you know you are onto something.  Your dentist can verify your results in this objective way for you!

Of course, you may have additional questions about this simple plan.   If you do, just go ahead and give us a call at 1-888-586-6849.   There is no obligation and your questions about this can be answered.

If you have gum disease, take action.  The reason why is that it probably won't get better unless you do something about it.   Gum disease often leads to tooth loss.  It is the number one cause, in fact.

3 Out Of Every 4 People Have Gum Disease

This is what many (or even most) dental professionals will typically tell you when you ask them.   They generally say 75% of people have some gum disease right now.

It doesn't really matter if you are talking about:

  1. Gum disease
  2. gingivitis
  3. periodontal disease
They are all different stages of the same disease process.

That process can eventually lead to the loss of a tooth.   Severe gum recession may or may not occur before that point.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.

If you think this is serious and even dangerous, you might be right.   Why lose a tooth if you don't have to.

They say that knowledge is power.

This Gum Disease Problem

It really is a big problem.  Lots of people have it and many don't know they have it.   So, how do you get this information in the hands of people if they don't even know they have the problem.

Preventing the problem is very important.  Stopping and existing problem is equally important.

When I say a lot of people have gum disease, dental professionals tell us about 75%  (sometimes higher) have gum disease.   That's 3 out of every 4 people.   That really is a lot.   What do you think the odds are that you are the 1 out of 4 that is safe? 

As I mentioned before, people just don't know they have this problem.  Often times, they are not told until it is time for an expensive treatment.

People are busy and they don't always have time to educate their patients.   Many doctors have found that the people actually do not listen until the situation is critical.   In a certain sense, you cannot blame them because they know people won't listen.

On the other hand, some dental professionals keep trying even though they understand the probability of getting through to more than a few people is unlikely.   This has been the blockage that has faced other dentists who have gone out of their way to talk about prevention. 

Unfortunately,  I am finding a similar situation.  Even though about 75% of people have some gum disease, they just don't want to pay attention to what I have to say.  

On the other hand, there are those who are delighted to find my information.  The absorb it, act on it, and some even call me to tell me how much better their dental health has become - as measured by their hygienist or dentist. 

I always advocate working with professionals.   My book is easy-to-understand and I believe it has the potential to save you a tremendous amount of money, pain and unhappiness over the years. 

Every family should have a copy and ever dental office should be giving copies to their patients.

And don't forget the machine that I think provides exceptional value and one that has the potential to also save you a great deal of cash and turmoil.

What You Should Know About Gum Disease Part 29

What You Should Know About Gum Disease - Part 29. 

In this video we reinforce the concept that plaque is the enemy and that the plaque continues to come back again and again.   It is a fight that must be fought every single day.  Failure to do so, is usually a step backwards.

The plaque is a living 'biofilm' and it forms an oxygen shield.  When this happens the 'bad bacteria' have a chance to reproduce rapidly and produce more and more acidic toxins which can ultimately have the effect of destroying surrounding tissue.

If too much of that tissue, including the bone, is destroyed, the tooth or teeth can become loose.  This is a disaster.  Implants can be very costly.

You can find the book here. 

Many people have gum disease right now and many (most)  do not know it.   In fact, there are people who have lost teeth and now have implants and they still don't know or understand that the reason for losing the teeth was gum disease.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.  It is possible to lose teeth through accidents or very severe cavities.  However, gum disease is the far, far in the lead when it comes to tooth loss.

I believe the book is one that every family should have o their book shelf.  Since dental professionals tell us that 3 out of every four or about 75%  of people have gum disease, there is a good chance that you or someone you love will need this information.

If you can save yourself from even one expensive treatment or toot replacement you will be far out in the lead.
