Sore gums in back of mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums in back of mouth


Not sure what the problem is, but a couple of weeks ago i noticed that when i wake up, my lower cheek where it meets the <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> on the left side is <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>. Sometimes the top area is <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> too. I thought i was biting it in my sleep, but the area is way below where i can bite. also, my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums are a bit red and there is a white spot right where it meets the tooth. I brush, floss, and use mouth wash twice a day. There is no food stuck there.
put a teaspoon of salt in some warm water and rinse around inside your mouth for 2-3 mins as many times as poss throughout the day. If there is no longer any bleeding then ask for the stitches to be removed this will help the healing process.
I went to the emergency room and was given a rapid strep test that came <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> negative. The doctor gave me 250MG of Cephalexin and 100W of Propoxyphene-N. I have taken these medications religiously for 3 days. My throat is no longer as painful as it was originally, but it is still background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very painful and colored the same way. Also, the infection has spread to my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums and background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums feel smooth to my tongue, are red, black, and white, and are also background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very painful.
Does anybody suffer with an awful taste, and burning background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sore mouth & background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums as a result of thyroid problems on certain days, but not maybe all the time? Only I keep getting it but I'm newly diagnosed with thyroid disease, so I'm not sure if it's related, I think it must be because I never got it before this. I'm also on HRT, which could be causing it, but I doubt it because I've been on it for years with no problems.
Greetings, About two weeks ago I woke up randomly with what felt to be background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sore, inflamed <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> near the first molars on each side of my front 4 incisors. I also noticed that the <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> beneath them seem to have receded quickly. I also had several ulcers, one on the roof of my mouth, one under my tongue -- both of which feel as though they've healed up. I had a deep cleaning done a week ago -- the Dentist noticed a significant buildup of calculus on the background-color: #dae8f4'>back of my front incisors.
I have never gotten on on my lips but I have been having problems with my bottom right gum at the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my mouth I thought for the longest time that it was from a wisdom tooth I had extracted 2 years ago but when I went in to be seen and got x-rays and there was no tooth or chips remaining to cause my problems.I described these symptoms to my dentist 1) happens ebackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very 1-3 weeks 2) numb pain background-color: #dae8f4'>behind right eye and right cheek 3 pain on background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums.... He told me it was a recurrent cold background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sore????
I just recently devolved a strange thing where when I talk my cheek keeps getting stuck in my jaw bone it's getting in the way of me eating and talking. From there it led to my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> tooth on the left side of my mouth becoming soft I feel as though I will chip it with my other teeth if I push hard enough.. From there I started getting a pain in my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums background-color: #dae8f4'>behind my background-color: #dae8f4'>back tooth.
For about two months now I have had considerable pain in the background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of the roof of my mouth along with little red dots that kind of look like spiders with streaks coming off of them. Initially, i ran a fever of 103-101 for about a week. I was prescribed Zithromax and then 875mg amox-clav. The pain comes and goes.
you are doing a great service. about two weeks ago, i noticed a white bump in my mouth on the inside of my gum, along with my <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> starting to bleed much easier than they had been. In fact, even when i bit down on a banana, they bled once, although i admit that this has happened before, but not recently). Well, i went to the dentist, and she said that the bump looked like a bony tori and that my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums were looking better than they had in the past.
<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> in Sept 2003 I started with a dry mouth not thrist just background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very dry I was having many sinus infections and was living on antibiotics I had surgery to fix my Deviated septum on left side with the hope the sinus troubles would go away.well since then I still have the dry mouth but now I also have a swollen tongue,swollen pale background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums only on my top set of teeth, bottom feels fine I have swelling in the inside of my cheeks and when I smile my cheeks are swollen especially the left side .
In the mouth, thrush appears to be creamy white patches or small red spots on the tongue, roof of the mouth (also called the hard palate), <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> or throat. Crusting on the corners of the mouth is also one of the symptoms of thrush.
My outer lips have plenty of them and there are some way in the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my mouth according to my dentist. But I do not know if new ones can appear as one gets older. At first I thought these were just injuries due to cheek biting, but they DO SCRAPE off as dead skin from biting normally has in the past. Was not sure if new spots could form or not. Thank you in advance for all of the reassuring information you give people here. Wish I had a doctor like you down here.
I did have a background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very mild problem with background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sores in the corner of my mouth, in my first TX <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> in 2006,i found a stevia extract liquid applied directly helped and i also used a mild cortizone cream.
I originally thought the pain in my cheek was due to me accidentally biting it, but now at the background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my mouth near my <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span>, not on them, there's a little lump. The lump and the area around it all the way to my throat is swollen, and I can barely open my mouth. It is super background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sore and I don't know what is wrong. Any ideas?
Hello, thanks so much for your reply, well its hard to say if it was sensative because my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums all on that side at the top were so background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>sore and sensative, that I didnt notice pain in one specific spot, since I saw him and started doing what he said, the pain in the rest of my <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> has subsided significantly and now its only localized at that one tooth ....
So about a year and a half ago, i noticed a little growth in the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my mouth, on the outside of the right side of my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums. (This appeared seemingly out of nowhere, although shortly before that I had been having wisdom tooth pain...I was told they would have to come out, but then they stopped hurting altogether, however this may be completely unrelated to the cyst.) It was filled with a white liquid, painless, and easily drained.
I am having some wierdness in my mouth lately too. It all started when my tooth in the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my mouth started hurting, after that i have been having a horrible taste in my mouth. I have read that it can be caused from a couple of different things, one being heavy metal poisoning, because if you have silver fillings they contain mercury. I have also read it could be from having too much iron in your system.
But for the past few days the inside of my mouth - cheeks, lips, <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of throat - have felt puffy and irritated. Certain foods even burn the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span> of my throat. I can tell that ebackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>verything is slighly swollen. I went to the dentist 2 days ago to have it checked, and she said the crown & background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums look fine. She poked at the background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums around the crown a bit & this caused some bleeding.
I also have breast cancer and have looked at the research on the apricot kernel(laetrile) meds promulgated in Mexico - banned in the USA, yet when people are desperate they go there. One of my friends in the US took her terminally ill husband there, he had to be airlifted background-color: #dae8f4'>back to Florida because of the treatment, and died. They don't show these occurrences in their website. Beware!
In the meantime, I wonder if using something to temporarily numb your background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums would help desensitize them enough to conform around your denture? In other words, rub your <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> with an orajel numbing gel let it work for a while and then place in your denture. If you can quiet it the nerve sensation in your background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums, maybe it will no longer recognize the denture as causing it. Might be worth a try. Good luck and let us know how you do.
However, for the past 2, or 2 1/2 weeks, I have been experiencing some oral problems including background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>very <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span>, <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> tongue and a bit of background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>soreness inside my cheek and inner lip. My background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums are red and a bit swollen and bleed when I brush them and my tongue looks like my taste buds slightly swollen, red and inflamed. The inside of my cheek is likewise red and a bit swollen in places as if I have bitten it while chewing food.
2 Months ago I had a Molar and Wisdom Tooth pulled on the Right Side of my mouth...don't know if that would make a difference in this or not, and had an Xray done of my whole mouth. (XRay machine that wraps around your face). So, with the background-color: #dae8f4'>back story complete, I guess all thats left is to ask the obvious... What could it be? And Should I be worried? Wouldn't the X-Ray or oral Examination 2months ago turned up something if something was wrong? Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but...
I went to the dentist yesterday with a complaint of pain/infection in the background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums surrounding one of my teeth (2nd to the last tooth in the top, left side of my mouth). The dentist took an x-ray and said the tooth was abcessed and the tooth needed to be pulled. When she was pulling the tooth, I was in excrutiating pain, and she said there was a pus discharge and my background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>gums were turning black and blue.
I'm hoping that she will know what to do with the <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = '<span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span></span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> and horrible bite. I use the kind of dental wax my kids used to use when they had braces to fill in the space background-color: #dae8f4'>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!
