Gum disease: Usually bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease. It is often not painful and gets progressively worse over time. Left untreated, you could lose teeth and possibly develop very serious infection. You should absolutely see a dentist for evaluation and treatment.

See a periodontist: Constantly bleeding gums is a signs of severe gum disease (periodontitis). This is not something you can successfully treat on your own and is the biggest reason for tooth lose in adults. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating gum disease. This is who you need to see for treatment. Please make an appointment ASAP.

Severe gum disease: Unless you have rare blood dyscrasia, or severe diabetes, you probably infected gums. Sorry, there's no pill you can take to cure this. If you would like not to loose the bone your teeth sit in, make an appointment with a gum/bone specialist now.
