Hello,

The blood in sputum is called hemoptysis. If gum bleeding is not probable cause in your case because dentist check up was done. So you can rule out respiratory cause like infection by chest X-ray. Kindly mention whether you have any other associated complaint like cough, fever, chest pain etc

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
