In brief: Evaluation needed
You shouldn't try to treat gum bleeding without a a clear diagnosis.
It may be gingivitis (and this is not trivial). It could also reflect more systemic bleeding problems. Either way, you need a diagnosis, and probably intervention. If there are no other signs of easy bleeding, start with a good dental evaluation, then if more answers are needed, see a good internist.

In brief: Yes, help
It will help, but it will not take care of it on its own.
You must improve your brushing and flossing. If an area bleeds, clean it more often to get the debris out that is causing the inflammation. See your dentist if it continues.
