what causes gum to bleed after not flossing for a long time and floss again versus nightly flossing


What Im trying to say is what happens in that period of not flossing that causes your gums to bleed a few times once you start flossing and then they very rarely start to bleed if you floss every day?

When you don’t floss regularly, plaque and tartar can build up along the gum line, leading to inflammation and infection in the gums. This can cause the gums to become red, swollen, and bleed when you floss.
