Gum soreness and bleeding can be caused by a variety of reasons. An infection of the gums due to food being stuck in the gum pockets, such as piece of popcorn, can cause major damage. Other factors that can be attributed to bleeding, swelling and bad breath include dead or diseased teeth, food impaction, decay, improper at home hygiene care, medication induced soreness, smoking and tobacco use.

A few ways to help with gum soreness and bleeding are to floss, maintain good oral hygiene, and brush twice a day for 2 minutes. If you have eaten popcorn or nuts, try flossing the area to dislodge any food pieces that are stuck in your teeth or gums, and rinse with warm salt water. Remove any piercings that are in the area of the trauma. Make a mental note of when and what triggers your pain, so that food or action can be avoided. Perhaps most importantly, seek dental help.
