Dentist?: Have you seen a dentist lately? Bleeding gums are the first sign that your mouth is infected by oral bacteria. Your body is trying to fight it by growing more fine blood vessels trying to send the blood's fighting cells close to the surface of the gums where bacteria grow. Unfortunately, more bacteria enter your blood, infecting the entire body, sending your immune system into over drive.
