My gums bleed when I brush, what does it mean?

Bleeding gums is an early indicator of gingivitis, usually caused by plaque and/or calculus accumulated under the gumline.

If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontal disease (gum disease), bone loss, and eventual tooth loss. Gingivitis can be reversed by proper brushing and flossing within a few weeks. If bleeding persists two to three weeks, consult your dentist.
