Dentist Dr. Farah Hussain's  Response
hello there ,

Blood in the spit is the sign of gingival inflammation.

Accumulation of bacterial plaque deep in the gum pockets and root surfaces of teeth leads to gingival inflammation know as gingivitis.

Gingivitis presents with symptoms of redness , bleeding gums , swelling , pain ,recession and sensitivity and even mobility of teeth and exfoliation if not treated in time.

It needs to be treated by thorough professional deep scaling of gums and root planing of the teeth to remove all the irritants ,this will help in resolving the symptoms followed by a course of antibiotic and analgesics.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Thanks for writing to us.
As per your explanation it is clear that you have gum inflammation, called gingivitis...when there are deposits over the tooth surface, gum gets inflamed resulting in gum the gums swell, the capillaries in the gums gets pushed to the surface and mild stimulation would result in bleeding....get your gums cleaned and gum astringent would be prescribed that would take care of you bleeding gums
Wishing you good health...
