    Aim: This study aims to analyze the hemoglobin count in patients with bleeding gums. Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in 100 subjects with bleeding gums visiting Saveetha Dental College and Hospital seeking for dental treatment. Hemoglobin count was estimated for those 100 subjects and the data are tabulated for statistical analyses. A written consent was obtained from each subject for the study. Patients with the chief complaint of bleeding gums and age >20 years are included in the study. Patients with any kind of blood-related disorders and dengue are excluded from the study. Results: This study reveals a deviation of lower hemoglobin count till 1.2 mg/dl in females and in males, a deviation of 2.3 mg/dl is seen. Conclusion: Patients must also be educated about the ill effects of poor oral hygiene and proper oral hygiene instructions must be given to them. Periodical review of such patients is essential to prevent further periodontal complications.
