Brief Answer:
Can be because of gum infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

This is Dr. Dipti Singh here to answer your query.

Gum bleeding is most likely not related to hypertension. There can be other causes which can be ascertained only by a physical examination. However the most likely possibility could be infection of gums.

I urge you visit a dentist and get oral cleaning done.

Hope it will help you.
Thank you
Regards
Dr . Dipti Singh
