    A dentist may recommend using a mixture of hydrogen peroxide diluted with water to rinse your mouth to treat bleeding gums. However, it is best to check with your dentist before trying such a mixture or making it a part of your oral hygiene routine. Be especially careful when using hydrogen peroxide because high concentrations can be toxic and prolonged use could cause damage to the soft and hard tissue of the mouth.
