Bleeding gums

My gums are bleeding without any reason. am having this problem from 5-6 years. i have halitosos from childhood. my mother also has halitosis but she doesn't have any gum problem. i visited dentist for 2 times after bleeding problem started. they did scaling and prescribed mouthwashes. after that i stared to brush at least 10-15 minutes daily and am using chlorhexidine mouthwash. but the problem still continuing and it's became more. my gums are receding and i have this problem mainly for front lower teeth and 2 teeth. i am taking more C vitamin containing food. but the problem became worse in these days. especially in the morning while waking up am having blood in my mouth. i have anxiety problem but am controlling that with yoga. can anyone please suggest about my condition and treatment? Thanks in advance.

U may be requiring a proper periodontal care. Lasers can be of great help. There are a lot of causes of halitosis.  Hope u also floss ur teeth or use the WaterPik water flosser.  Anxiety also causes hormonal disturbances and swollen gums sometimes.  Plz feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre anytime. God bless u.

A peridontist who is a person which specializes in this line of treatment, will be of great help to you in this situation.
The problem you are facing is related to gum disease. No need to panic and brush 15 times. Twice a day is enough.
Please without wasting any more time visit your periodontist and go through the prescribed medicines and treatment.

All the best !
