Why do my gums bleed ?

Gingivitis in simple terms means gum inflammation. A build-up of plaque causes this mild type of gum disease. Your gums may be red, sore and swollen if you have gingivitis. While brushing our teeth, they bleed.


If gingivitis is left untreated it can progress to a more severe for of gum disease known as periodontitis. In periodontitis, gum infection affects the tissue and bone that protect the teeth. your gums become inflamed and swollen, causing them to detach from the roots of your teeth.
