Hi normally at your age it's because of the deposits hidden around teeth that cause inflammation and infection in your gums.a good scaling will help get immediate relief from the problem. Post that u need to be trained abt how to maintain oral hygiene. Visit a periodontist like me to get the best results. Don't use mouthwash or gum paints for too long as they have side effects. Visit a dentist instead.

It's better to go for a treatment rather than having home remedies. Try to consult a dentist as soon as possible and get the oral prophylaxis(scaling and polishing) done to avoid further more complications. Bleeding happens because of food accumulation in the gums and in between the teeth where the gums get infected and become tender.

Hi,Bleeding from the gums is because of deposits on teeth called tartar which should be treated by getting a professional cleaning with the dentist every six monthly & brushing twice daily with a soft bristle toothbrush .Any home remedy will not help much.Use of mouthwash is also recommended.
