In brief: Bleeding gums

If you see blood when you're brushing your teeth, chances are you have gum disease.
Don't delay, see a dentist for an evaluation and cleaning, as soon as possible.

In brief: Sore, bleeding gums

Bad breath and red, swollen gums with bleeding is a cardinal sign of gingivitis and early periodontal disease.
If not treated, it will lead to recession of gums and bone loss around teeth.
