Why Are My Gums Bleeding?

Similarly gums form a tight collar around the teeth and it does not bleed, when the gums bleeds it means bacteria has penetrated the collar, they breed and release toxins causing the gums to become puffy, red and bleed easily. Over time the bacteria burrow down and dissolve the bone surrounding teeth resulting in jawbone disease ultimately leading to lose teeth, drifting of teeth, bad breath and teeth falling out from the jaws.
