Bleeding gums often indicate gingivitis or periodontal disease.
People tend to stop brushing or flossing as frequently and effectively because it may be painful or it may cause the gums to bleed more. However, when gums are inflamed, brushing is very important at this time, as it may help to reduce the inflammation by clearing build-ups of plaque and other bacteria that may have caused the disease in your mouth.
