Gum disease??: Does this happen often? Have you been to a dentist for a thorough exam and cleaning recently? It may be gun disease, but impossible to tell without being evaluated by a dentist

Gingivitis: When was your last visit to the dentist? Swollen red ring on your gums around the teeth is a symptom of a gum infection called gingivitis or periodontitis in a more advanced stage. See a dentist ASAP.

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