Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
As far as the bleeding gums and bad breath is concerned I have two possibilities. It can be because of the gum infection secondary to the deposits (calculus) over the teeth. The other possible cause can be secondary to a decayed teeth which results in food lodgement and may result in gum infection and halitosis.
Nothing to be panic. Consult a oral physician and get it evaluated. You need to get your teeth cleaned (scaling). After that maintain the oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily. Rinse your mouth soon after eating anything. Avoid in between eating. Consume sweets along with lunch or dinner rather than eating it separately. Avoid sweets before going to bed because during sleep the salivary secretion will be very less or negligible.
I hope I have answered your query. If any queries are there reply me back. Take care.
