See your dentist: Bleeding gums can be a sign that you already have, gum disease. The bacteria and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless toxic “plaque” on teeth causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed. This is a serious problem, which should be checked professionally by a dentist. The good news is that this condition is curable. Call your dentist today!

No medication: The only way to reduce bleeding and swelling of gums is to visit the dentist. Get X-rays and probing of the gums to find out the stage of the disease. The treatment should include scaling and root planing. Once this has been accomplished, then the dentist can prescribe some mouth wash and instruct u in proper brushing and flossing. There are no meds to take to treat bleeding gums.
