Do you have issues with bleeding in your mouth? If so, you may be wondering what to do when your mouth won’t stop bleeding. To get to the right solution, take the time to determine whether you have chronic or acute bleeding. The right remedy will depend on your case.
Chronic bleeding usually occurs with no pain and in conjunction with gingivitis. To remedy chronic bleeding rinsing your mouth with a 1:1 ratio of hydrogen peroxide and water should help. Another helpful remedy is tannic acid found in teas. Drinking tea can help minimize bleeding and keep it at bay until your dentist is able to check you out.
Acute bleeding occurs after a traumatic accident. To reduce bleeding, apply pressure to the area for up to five minutes. Doing this should help do the trick. It is important to get seen by a dentist right away to address your injury and to prevent an infection from occurring.
