The bleeding gums are as a result of a gingivits (most likely). A cleaning at a dentist should sort out the problem.
Plaque is removed by correct brushin and flossing.

Some mornings he'll wake up with blood on his teeth.I hate it when he tries to kiss me or our little baby girl. I don't show him of course becuse i do not want to hurt his feelings.He knows about his problem and has bought Sensodyne toothpaste, but it does'nt seem to help. Please can you help him? thanks
