See dentist: The best way for you to find an answer is to see a dentist for an exam. When was the last time you had your teeth cleaned? Is the bleeding only around a few teeth or your entire mouth? What medications are you taking? Do you floss at least once a day? Your dentist will help you.

See a dentist: If you experience bleeding gums, it may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. Gingivitis is a serious problem, which should be diagnosed professionally by a dentist. Do not delay, call a dentist ASAP.
