I've just brushed my teeth today, and there was blood in the sink. I don't understand why?

Any ideas on this one?

1. you need to change a new set of toothbrush!
2. i think that your using too much strength to brush your teeth!
3. you have gum disease
tip: try being more gentle on your gums next time!

your supposed to brush them every day

try a softer bristle brush You may be brusing too hard.

Its from your gums, next check up with the dentist ask them. It may be because your gums are receding, which means they shrink. Don't brush your teeth so hard, make sure you brush them at least three times a day.

You brush them every week?
You should be brushing and flossing twice a day to help prevent build up of plague which leads to Gingivitis and Gum Disease. The teeth and gums should be cleaned by your Dentist or Hygienist at least once a year.
Bleeding is the first sign of gum problems so i suggest you book an appointment asap.

He's like my twin with a D...

anyway, you probably brushed to hard.

maybe your teeth or gums are bleeding because you brushed too hard....

Your wife puched you in your sleep....

could be a coagulation disorder. get your platelet count, PT,PTT,INR checked

You may have a blister in your mouth that you don't know about. Or you may have just brush too hard today. Or your gums may just be sensitive.

I have a hard time believing this is a real question. You should know that you need to brush your teeth at least twice daily. Floss with it. Blood is caused from gum disease. You cant be serious!

Drop a heart, break a name
Maybe it is caused by the friction of your toothbrush against the gum, is it a regular accurance if so I would suggest going to a dentist or doctor.

Wait you brush them every week? or every day? Brush your teeth two times a day At least no more than 4 ... Aslo you could have been brushing to hard..or somthing you ate in the past day or two could have cut your gums up..

When I eat apples I have to be careful coz somtimes apple skin gets in between my gums and cuts them up...

Try flossing for inbetween teeth it could be somthing there that yoru brush isnt getting..Dont sweat it yet...if the bleeding continues or gets worse go see a dentist.

(oo wash your mouth out with salty waster 1 a day it'll really help

receding gums/gum disease go see your dentist also use corsodyl mouthwash. as you said you only brush your teeth once a week the bleeding may be a cause of this also best to brush them daily you will make the matter worse if you dont keep your mouth clean

brushing too hard can split your gum, or you have gum disease. Consult your dentist. I'm in the same boat, but its because my teeth are screwed.....

Gum desies (ignore spelling) go doctors and they give you some stuff it does'nt hurt or anything it just meen your gums are thin and they give you some stuff to kill disease and they get back healthy

I think you are kidding, surely. It is the beginning of gum disease. If not treated your gums will retreat and your teeth will fall out. Then you will curse you didn't clean them more often. I don't know how old you are but teeth are so important. Once you lose them you never get them back. Also if you are not cleaning them properly you may suffer from a really bad odour in the mouth. Not nice. I wonder if you are "with" anyone? Probably not!!

Every week? Do you not brush them everyday? If not, then that is your problem. Your gums are raw. You should brush your teeth daily and include brushing the gums also. Many people brush only the teeth and not the gum. Then one day they may get the gums and they will bleed a bit. Include them in your routine and you will have healthier gums with no future bleeding. Also change your toothbrush every 6 months. If the bleeding is excessive, talk to your dentist.

Gingivitis, you have inflamed gums. Brush more often like twice a day, use gargle. Or is this just a silly question?

You need to brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Also you may have a gum disease. See your Dentist. You may need to get a water pick and use it daily.

Sounds like you may be brushing a little to often. Try gargling with Irn Bru every fortnight or so instead of brushing.
