Dentist 's  Response
You have Gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gums. Bleeding from the gums is the first sign of it. You should get a scaling of your teeth done once in 6 months and follow proper oral hygiene instructions. A periodontal flap surgery would be required if periodontitis has occurred. Flossing of your teeth should be done once a day to improve the health of your gums. A chlorhexidine mouth wash could be used twice daily for 3 weeks and the instruction to use should be followed properly.

Thanks for query,
It sees that you might have pyorrhea and clindamycin given will work.
After some healing you go for dental treatment like tartered teeth,carious teeth.
Do antibiotic gargle,apply gum paint and keep proper oral hygiene.
Take vitamin C and multi vitamin supplements.
Ok and bye.
