Bleeding gums is a sign of gum disease, most likely gingivitis, which is reversible. The fact that it is noticed in the morning may be suggestive or mouth breathing. If you sleep with your mouth open or breathe regularly through your mouth rather than nose, it's mouth breathing. Mouth breathing will dry your mouth as saliva will cease to exist. This will affect your gums and teeth. Our saliva has many properties which help protect our oral cavity from disease. Check with your dentist or hygienist for their recommendations.
