In brief: Inflammation

Blood means inflammation and generally comes from periodontal inflammation.
This ranges from simple gingivitis (gum inflammation) to more serious periodontitis (infected pockets below the gumline with gum and bone loss). See your dentists for helpful treatment and tips to get this under control.
