This is due to a condition known as Gingivitis(inflammation of gums). You should undergo scaling of your teeth. Flossing of teeth should be done once a day. Cleaning of your tongue using tongue scraper. Should change your tooth brush once in 3 months.

Hi, the main cause of gum bleeding is calculus deposit that causes gum infection. So consult your dentist and get scaling done if required. There could be other reasons of bleeding gums like vitamin deficiency, use of medication, hard brushing, use of improper brushes etc. Your dentist will be able to solve your problem. Take care!

Hi, . bleeding occurs because of two reasons while brushing. Either you are brushing very forcefully or there is a gum inflammation. In case if inflammation, the gums become swollen and they bleed on slight touch. So please consult a dentist for a complete examination and treatment. Take care!

Understanding your problem,you probably need to go to a dentist and get your teeth Scaling(cleaning) done.Do oral rinses with solution of luke warm water plus salt for about 10 to 15 seconds and spit.Repeat 2-3 times/day.Bleedinb shall stiop but unless scaling is done,it will reoccur .
