Q: Is it normal if your gums bleed when you floss? I haven’t flossed in a few days and when I did today they started bleeding.
A: Bleeding gums can definitely be a cause of concern, because it can very often be the sign of a deeper issue. If you’re brushing and flossing regularly, and then take a bit of a break, it is common for your gums to bleed when you start up again.
