My gums bleed when I brush. Is this a problem?

My gums bleed when I brush. Is this a problem?

We would be very concerned if another part of our body was bleeding when we touched it.  Bleeding from the gums is a sign that there is disease either in the gums around the teeth, or the bone that supports it.  In some cases, with professional scaling and cleaning, careful monitoring of the gums and modifications to home care, the gums can become healthy again. In other cases, where there is irreversible and extreme damage, all of the teeth end up needing to be removed and a horseshoe shaped piece of acrylic with fake teeth on it, a removable denture is issued so that the patient can continue to eat.
