Along with bleeding gums, Gingivitis also cause more serious problems where the bone that supports teeth gets weaker and gradually it will lead to falling out of your teeth.

Causes of Gum Problems
Dangerous bacteria, normally known as plaque cause bleeding, swelling and gets sensitive if not treated on time. If you avoid the condition without treating it, this can result in a condition where the bacterium increases to the level where it can get into your bloodstream and may cause more serious problems in future.

When you go to your dentist for teeth cleaning, dentist will let you know if your gums are bleeding. If they are bleeding, dentist will explain you the reason for the condition and what you can do about it. You may think that bleeding gums have been caused because of the procedure of cleaning, but you should know that if your gums were strong and healthy they would not bleed during the procedure. So, proper cleaning of your teeth and gums from time to time and regular flossing and brushing will prevent this situation.

Education is the key. I have come across too many patients who say "I just bleed a little".
