It sounds like gum disease.  This can actually be quite serious.  It causes as much tooth loss as tooth decay, and more than that, the bacteria can get in your blood stream and cause systemic and heart problems.  

You should be using an extra soft toothbrush.  Colgate makes good ones.  Use baking soda and peroxide toothpaste.  Floss with a gentle type floss.
