Bloody painful gums, what should I do?

Your best bet is to get to a dentist who can look at your gums and let you know if you have a case of gingivitis, swollen bleeding gums, or periodontitis whose symptoms are swollen bleeding gums and bone loss. If left untreated, you can loose a tooth or teeth. Until you see the dentist, I would recommend rinsing with a good mouthwash like Listerine for 30 seconds at least 3 times a day. Continue to brush and floss. Initially, flossing can cause more bleeding, but as you remove the bacterial plaque, the bleeding should become less. However, please remember you should not let this go without a dentist looking at you ASAP. If you are in my area (Morristown NJ), we would be happy to help.
