I hope this is the right forum.

I'm really worried at the moment as when I brush my teeth (with electrick toothbrush) my front two teeth sometimes bleed. the rest of my teeth are ok it's just my front two. I've been to the dentist who said my teeth are good but have a bit of redness ad I need to spend a bit longer brushing, which I have been doing.

I'm really worried and have tried to make an appointment, but apparently I cant be seen until the end of May! I have started using Corsadyle mouthwash to see if that helps, but I'm still worrying. Can anyone advise me please? shock

My friend doesn't help she says the one I go to are butchers and don't tell you if anything is wrong until it's too late. Apparently she says it's a ploy to get NHS patients to pay for dental work.

I'd try changing dentists. You need to be flossing and using interdental brushes daily to get on top of the bleeding.

Have you been to a hygienist for a scale and polish? That'd be my first point of call.
Do your gums look at all swollen?
