I have a problem with bleeding gums on the front top. The problem is that I started having grows just behind the front teeth. When I eat something hard and it touches that growth I start to bleed. It is not painful but I can feel it. Recently It started to grow in between the teeth making me to look as if my teeth have gums running down. That is also where the problem start because when I brush them they also bleed. The growth itself is soft but not large.

Regards
