 Reasons for Gum bleeding

Sometimes milk, honey, soda, sugar, cakes, cookies, dry fruits, and chips get collected on the tooth enamel. If they are not cleaned properly, the bacterium in your mouth feeds on those sugar and starchy foods. These bacteria produce acid that forms a plaque on the gums. Over time, plaque and tartar irritate the gum causing gum inflammation around the base of teeth. This would make the gums weak, and they might bleed easily.

Gum bleeding could be due to a majority of other reasons like gingivitis, a disease that causes inflammation of the gum. Not brushing twice, daily using a toothbrush that is too hard and sniffing, using an old or worn-out toothbrush, which does not do the purpose of brushing at all, and conditions like diabetes and leukemia.
