If your gums bleed when flossing or brushing your teeth, you most likely have an accumulation of plaque where your teeth meet your gums—an early stage of periodontal disease.
Diagnosing Periodontal Disease
One of the most common reasons for bleeding gums is the accumulation of plaque (bacterial down payments) where the teeth meet with the gums. Because it is normally pain-free, many people think it is regular, but it isn’t.
