In brief: See a dentist

Bleeding gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, advanced gum disease.
Untreated gingivitis can lead to the tooth loss and other health problems. See your dentist ASAP because the sooner you treat it the better the outcome.

In brief: Soft toothbrush.

The best way is probably to use a soft toothbrush, because it does not damage and inflame the gums.
The best person for this answer would probably be the dentist.

In brief: Consult your dentist

First, see your dentist.
It may be as simple as a hygiene appointment and enhanced home care. The dentist may find that you need scaling and root planing or an appointment with a periodontist. Don't wait and schedule an appointment soon. It is very difficult to ascertain without a clinical examination and radiographs.

In brief: Don't give up!

If your good habits at home, i.
e. Brushing and flossing, don't reduce the problem, you may have more serious periodontitis rather than just gingivitis. See your dentist soon.
