Sore gums and jaw

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums and jaw

sore

For over a year I have been experiencing sore and sometimes inflamed and swollen gums. I have seen both my dentist and hygienist and we have been unable to solve the problem or what is causing it. The pain is now there more often than not now, whereas before it was intermittent. I have not managed to pin point what may cause the symptoms.
Four days ago I woke up with mildly sore inner mouth, along the gums and lower inner jaw, as well as a little soreness on one side of my upper gums. I have been using mouthwash twice a day. The second or third day there was one small white bump that formed, but since then that has disappeared. Should I be worried? What could this be? Will it go away? What can I use to help it go away? Do I need to go to the dentist.
I woke the other morning to notice my mouth was really sore, it felt as though my gums on the right side had a lump on the inner side and my jaw and mouth hurt when I move it too much eg, eating, drinking I can not open my mouth wide without pain in my jaw and mouth area this is only on the right side. I also have a sore throat now. I also noticed today that my tonsils are swelling and I have a lot of mucus and my gums seem white.
My jaw cracks more then usual when chewing but I think its the weather changing not due to being pregnant.
A month later my crown came out a week later my bridge came out. It is 3 weeks later and now my gums are extremely sore where the root canal was performed. Are there any everyday/natural remedies I can use until I can get to the dentist.
What will happen if I don't do anything? Will I have sore and swollen gums for the rest of my life?

When I am done I look at my gums and they are bruised. At first I thought they were bleeding but they are just bruised and really burn. The day before this started happening I noticed swelling under my tongue. I do not have a sore throat, nor am I sick. I just feel like I have swollen "glands" under my tongue. If there even are glands, I assume their are salivary glands there but not sure what I am looking at.
I'm hoping that she will know what to do with the sore gums and horrible bite. I use the kind of dental wax my kids used to use when they had braces to fill in the space behind my front teeth. It makes my bite a lot more comfortable (more like it used to be) but, naturally, it keeps falling out. Besides marrying my first husband, having these front teeth crowned is the biggest mistake I've ever made!
I have had jaw pain and deep gum pain on and off for many years and I feel like I clench at night as my jaw muscles are really tight and sore when I wake. I have had sore gums deep within and terrible receeding problems on my gums. There has been a mention from a dentist that it may be herpes simplex irritating the nerves in the gums/jaw. Does anyone have anything like this or any information to help. Thanks.
i get it regularly and as it hurt to swallow your jaw is moving in odd directions trying to over compensate for this pain and you have probably pulled a muscle or ligament in your jaw. this would also account for your high temperature and your gums. Garge Cordisil mouthwash its anti bacterial and is avaliable from everywhere its antibacterial and is great stuff. but eventually you will need a course of antibiotics.
A couple of days ago I noticed my lower gums, the whole thing, both sides, was really sore, I couldn't eat anything but yogurt or bananas. I looked in the mirror and couldn't see anything except it was all red and puffy. Then last night I noticed it was hurting even when I wasn't eating anything, I was just sitting there and it hurt. This morning my entire jaw started to ache, like if I touch my face from the outside it's tender and sore, on both sides, all the way back to my ears.
Can jaw pain and constant sore throat be a symptom of Fibromyalgia / CFS. I was diagnosed with CFS a few years ago and had glandular fever when I was 19 (am 48 now) but have had bouts of feeling flu like and general fatigue over the years. I have had a consistant sore throat, bit of ear pain, swollen glands and jaw ache, plus sharp pain in jaw when trying to eat, for over a month now. Dr gave me antibiotics but it hasn't helped. Has anyone else experienced this please?
On Monday felt a little pain and discomfort which gradually increased through Tuesday and still experience pain and discomfort on wednesday. When mouth is closed there is no pain. When moving jaw from side to side, no pain. I experience tthe pain and discomfort when opening my mouth. II also noticed my face get a little puffy on that side on Tuesday. Do think my jaw is broken, dislocated, or just bruised?

part of the old tooth broke and they had to cut away some of the gums around the tooth and make the crown longer.. ( lower jaw right side just before the molar ) .. since then my front lower teeth .. and what feels like my gums and under my tounge are sore.... its almost a dull pain.. does not respond to 800 mg ibprofen or ora gel at all... ive tapped the teeth with metal objects and no different, no visible damage to them.. ( so not a absess or cavitiy im guessing ) however...
Chills, mild fever that came and went; still bottom gums inflamed and now spreading to upper gums. SORE THROAT developed quickly. Days 4-5: Noticed white bumps on inner bottom lip and then most recently 2-3 tiny painful whit bumps on tip of tongue. STILL inflamed gums, top and bottom. STILL sore throat. What do I have? I've been told by doc I have mild pharyngitis, but this was on day 2 so he didn't see any white bumps in mouth.
Hi, quite some time I go I had a tooth removed on the left-hand side of my mouth -with no problems. Over the last few months my gums, jaw and the teeth on either side of the gap have been in constant pain. My dentist has told me I have receding gums in that area but has given me no solution on how to fix the problem. Painkillers don't seem to work. My gums have definitely receded where the tooth is missing.
inside my mouth about a month ago after the sore subsided, I started to have jaw pain on the same side...could this be part of the herpes infecting my jaw? how long does it last? Its very bothersome and dosent seem to be getting better.
It started off with light muscle twitching on my lower left jaw and i felt this area was quite swollen - then my gums have been slightly swollen and sore like pounding,pulsating! right at the back on my lower left jaw i have a white spot i have been told its not cancer its scar tissue from wisdom tooth removal- however this was there before i had the tooth removed - my glands under my jaw in my neck are swollen & sore thy have been like this for the past year & half!
i had a relly bad sore throat for 3-4 days with white blisters and swollen and then the infection moved to my gums around two bad teeth. My jaw swelled up and by the the end of the day my jaw had a huge red welt over the swollen area.
I'm thinking it may be due to the root canal treatment and being open for a long time and possibly the jaw is sore and tired. The sore on the gums may be from the rubber dam clamp they use to put the rubber shield on when doing a root canal.
The crown throbs and its hard to eat and move my jaw because of pain in the cheeks and gum line. the glands feel swollen. i have also used oralgel and kanker gel which only numbs it for 2 hours. What else can i do? should i go back to dentist and how long do i have to wait for pain to ease. Do i have an infection? the crown is not even with my other molar tooth, its deeper.
Few days ago I went to the dentist concerned that my swollen lymph node, sore throat, aching jaw/sinuses, sensitive teeth & irritated mouth might be due to damaged/infected teeth/gums. Dentist reported no infection in teeth or gums though my panoramic x-ray showed two 'unusual' lesions in my jaw-bone behind my last molar -larger one close to last molar but not permeating the membrane & a smaller one further back.
This may be Trigeminal neuralgia as you have typical one sided facial pain extending to temple and eye( ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve may be involved) and sore gums of the teeth of same side (maxillary branch of 5th nerve). Trigeminal neuralgia may have a triggering factor like recent history of tooth extraction, touch, cold breeze or hot sensation etc. which you need to evaluate and avoid.
Had a partial root canal done and the same thing is happening to me; jaw and ear pain, swelling around the jaw area, sinuses draining. I've been dealing with this since the really July from a routine filling but it really got bad on Dec. 22nd 2006, when I hurt from my right side of my head down to my jaw and over to my ear. My dentist did say that my tooth needed a root canal and he did a partial but the pain is still there. Appreciate any input.
