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.

The blood source needs to be localized in order to help with diagnosis Need to visit dentist. Lots of saliva usually better than less!
