Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in.

If you have bleeding gums then it could be due to deposition of calculus & tartar.
You need to go for deep subgingival scaling.
Maintain good oral hygiene by regular brushing twice a day.Use 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwash once daily.
Change your brush every 3 months.
Visit your dentist every 6 months for regular check up.

Hope I answered your query

Wishing you good health
