Bleeding Gums


16 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi Everyone ~ 1st post, yay!

So I started vaping just over 2 months ago (after 16 years of those nasty analogs, yippee!!!) and about two weeks in, I started spitting up blood every time I brushed my teeth. I never had this issue before so I assume it must be because of vaping. It's dissipated almost completely now so I'm not too concerned but was wondering if anyone else experienced this?? As a side note, my teeth and gums have never looked healthier!

Just joined this amazingly awesome site today so I'm sorry if I'm being redundant, don't know if this was posted already. I've been trolling here for about 10 hours (give or take, lol) now, and I must say this is hands down the best vaping site/forum I've stumbled across. So many inspirational, insightful people & topics! :)

Interesting. I havent heard of this happening, but since the bleeding stopped and you continue to vape, I believe it had more to do with stopping smoking....... just a theory. :)

Oh riiiight. I never thought of that, lol. And I have heard about increased blood flow when you stop smoking (also experienced it, my fingers/toes were ALWAYS cold when I was smoking & that has improved dramatically since I stopped) so increased blood to my mouth would only make sense. Thanks Jeff!

glad it got better for you. I am 1 year into vaping and I just noticed my ankles swell now. ( My 84 yr old mom says it is due to me being old..lol..) during the first month of vaping I started getting a bloody nose and sores in my mouth. but least I am healthy and my heart is fine!

ive never had that problem and i was a 2pack a day smoker for a couple years, allergic reaction maybe? Id think youd get healthier once you quit, i certainly feel healthier and more refreshed nowadays.

I had the same symptom about 3 months in. It lasted about 2 weeks. I did somersaults too after learning it was a healing symptom. Isn't life grand!

Had the same thing. My dentist told me it was my mouth healing. Lasted for 2-3 weeks. Now my gums are better than they have been in 15 years.

I have to admit - I have noticed the same thing - bleeding gums when brushing. I thought maybe I was having a gum disease issue, but my teeth appear to be fine and the bleeding persisted after a good cleaning.

I was wondering if the vaping was causing a bit of oral dehydration. When you are dehydrated, your gums can form tiny cracks, which tear open when you brush.

I haven't been tracking my water consumption and matching it with the bleeding, but I do notice it waxes and wanes - and some days I drink more water, and some none at all. I guess I'll start paying attention and seeing if there is a corelation, but this might be the cause of that issue. You are supposed to drink more water when vaping ANYWAY, so good advice even if it isn't the cause.

I've never consumed as much water as I do now...since I took up vaping! It really makes me dry/thirsty... but that certainly isn't a bad thing now that I need the water more than I did before. Just keep in mind that we now need to be on top of our water consumption more than ever since vaping dries you out like it does! :yes

I believe I read somewhere that smoking cigarettes slowly kills your nerve endings and now that most of us quit those same nerve endings are healing and blood returning to those areas. I'm no doctor but this may be whats happening.

I have had bleeding gums sometimes before I started vaping and after so I never linked it. Went to the dentist recently for the first time in 20 years and he says I am in need of a deep cleaning. The part of the teeth below the gumline can get buildup of junk and will eat away at the bone making your teeth loose. I have a little bone loss as shown on the xrays so I will do what he says. Years of smoking and not going to the dentist are the reasons for this. My teeth have gotten better since I quit the stinkies.
