How to stop bleeding gums

Bleeding gums are generally caused by infection from bacteria and other viruses. Sometimes an injury could also cause bleeding. The plaque on your teeth must be removed by regular brushing. Home remedies for this includes mouthwash and citrus fruits that contain vitamin C. Cleaning gums along with teeth every day helps fight gum bleeding. Avoiding alcohol and aspirin, which affect clotting of blood, helps to manage gums better.
