Bleeding gums and bad breath can have various causes. Most often the cause is easily resolved but leaving the symptoms alone will not cause it to go away, in fact, it could mean that there are underlying serious issues.



Some of the causes are:

-High accumulation of plaque and tartar due to poor oral hygiene
-Gastric reflux
-Periodontal or gum disease
