In brief: See a dentist

Bleeding and swollen gums can be a sign that you already have, gum disease.
The bacteria and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless toxic “plaque” on teeth causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed. This is a serious problem, which should be checked professionally by a dentist. The good news is that this condition is curable. Call your dentist today!

In brief: Clean It out

When you cut your hand you leave it alone.
..It heals. When your gums bleed it is because of debris and inflamation and will not go away if you leave it alone. You much brush and floss the area even if it is a bit uncomfortable. It will feel better after you have been doing that for a few days. Most importantly see your dentist for a cleaning and check up.
