Whenever I brush my teeth my gum starts bleeding slightly and I feel a little pain for a long time what should I do?

2 Doctors Answered
Bleeding gums, most commonly result from gum inflammation (swelling) due to tartar / plaque deposition on teeth. Brush twice a day, rinse vigorously after every meal and get a professional cleaning of your teeth done. That should resolve your problem.
Get a scaling done.
