I’ve Recently Found Blood On My Toothbrush. Could This Be Down To My Heart Condition?

Hi Dr Mitsas, I have a condition known as SVT, so my heart beats to fast most of the time. The only real impact I believed it had on me was increasing my chances of fainting when feeling nervous or too excited but I’ve recently found blood on my toothbrush. I have always taken great pride in my teeth, and I have always attended check-ups etc, always taken such good care of them. Have you heard of this before? Can SVT cause gum disease? What would you recommend that I do. Thank you!
Hello and thank you for getting in touch. The best thing to do is to book an appointment with a hygienist to see if you have gum disease or not. Bleeding can sometimes be caused by brushing hard, but if it continues to bleed over a couple of days, try to seek expert advice and see if they can help you with this. I hope this helps and if you require further information on gum disease you can find it through this website. Kind regards, Dr Dimitrios Mitsas.
