See a dentist: Please see a dentist to diagnose and treat your problem(s). Toothpaste is not a substitute for proper and necessary dental treatment.

Gum disease: "bleeding stink gums" can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. Untreated gingivitis can advance to periodontitis and can eventually lead to the gap between the teeth, tooth loss and other health problems. See your dentist ASAP because the sooner you treat it the better the outcome.
