See a dentist: Note: bleeding anywhere in the human body is not normal. You may have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis). Like the photograph. A dentist can determine where the blood is coming from and work out appropriate treatment. You may need something as simple as a deep, thorough cleaning of teeth and gum line.

Not normal: Blood in your saliva is not normal. It may be an oral problem (gums, teeth, etc.) or something from deeper down. Start by calling your dentist who will do a preliminary examination and refer you to others if needed.

See your dentist: Bleeding from your gums is not normal.. Its a sign of an infection. I would try 1/4 clove oil 1/4 oregano oil 1/2 olive oil with a soft toothbrush ...This could get rid of the bleeding but you still will need professional care.
