Gums that are bleeding when brushing, or that have visible staining and buildup around them require emergency care to ensure that they return to health with periodontal care to resolve the inflamed gums, which can damage the bone that holds the teeth in place. They usually don't hurt so bleeding gums are a sign that there is a problem with the support of the teeth
bad taste in the mouth
A bad taste in the mouth could be due to a need to improve home care dental techniques or the frequency of brushing and flossing. Sometimes it is caused by periodontal disease where bacterial deposits are building up under the gums. There could be a dead tooth that is infected, so all cases of a bad taste in the mouth need to be investigated further.
A cracked tooth may be able to be rebuilt with ceramic or resin, or may be damaged internally and require root canal treatment or extraction. Prompt emergency dental care will allow timely assessment and the chance to be given all options that are available, and to eliminate pain that often follows leaving an issue with a tooth for too long.
