In brief: Inflamed gums

Even if you brush and floss properly, it's not uncommon to miss spots here and there over time.
Calculus, which is hard, builds up and causes the gums to become inflamed which in turn leads to bleeding gums. There are other possible causes such as certain medical conditions, food impaction, etc. See your dentist for a thorough exam, x-rays and cleaning.
