Thanks for your query.

Blood during brushing is one of the initial signs of gum disease. I would suggest that you visit your dentist for scaling i.e.: a thorough clean up of teeth and gums. The bleeding should stop within a few days of scaling.

Until you can visit a dentist, you may start using a good mouthwash to improve your oral hygiene along with brushing twice daily.

Hope this answers your query.
