Answer: No! Bleeding gums are never normal. Bleeding is a sign of a gum tenderness, irritation and infection. Think of gum tissue as you would the skin on your hands. If your nails bled every time you used a nail brush to clean them, you would instinctively know "something" was wrong. The same holds true when it comes to your gums. Bleeding causes bacterimia which is the presence of bacteria in the blood. Bleeding gums is one of the signs of periodontitis and gingivitis.
