Q.

Bleeding gums while brushing teeth

Hi doc

When I brush my teeth, my gums bleed for quite some time now. My dentist suggest that I use Corsodyl for 5 consecutive days, but the bleeding still havn't stopped.

What should I do?

has your dentist done a scaling and polishing ? if not this usually sorts the problem out. if it continues despite having done this i suggest seeing him again as further investigation may be needed.
