Hello,bleeding gums could be because of food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

The main cause of bleeding gums is the buildup of plaque at the gum line. This will lead to a condition called gingivitis, or inflamed gums. Plaque that is not removed will harden into tartar. This will lead to increased bleeding and a more advanced form of gum and jawbone disease known as periodontitis. Other causes of bleeding gums include: Any bleeding disorder Brushing too hard Hormonal changes during pregnancy Ill-fitting dentures or other dental appliances Improper flossing Infection, which can be either in a tooth or the gum Leukemia, a type of blood cancer Scurvy, a vitamin C deficiency Use of blood thinners Vitamin K deficiency

Bleeding Gums is mostly a sign of unhealthy gums (Gingivitis). A professional cleanup will help resolve your problem. A thorough Checkup is also needed to rule out any other cause.
