What routine should I follow for occasionally bleeding gums? It happens when I'm brushing my teeth. Could this be due to brushing only or any other reason?

Generally bleeding gums are associated with gingival inflammation. Bleeding gums need attention and dentists care. You need to schedule a visit to the dentist  office. BTW healthy gums dont bleed! Tc
