Could a ct scan cause bleeding gums?

I had a ct scan last night and this morning when I brushed my teeth I notice my gums were bleeding. Did the radiation from the ct scan cause this?

Update:

And I had 2 earlier this year

    No. A single CT will not cause your gums to bleed. Take care of your teeth and gums better

    No, it doesnt work like that and its not enough to cause radiation sickness (and its too fast anyway)

    Not a chance. Don't brush your gums when cleaning your teeth. Use a medicated mouthwash.
