Common Questions and Answers about How to get teeth gums pink


Avatar n tn i noticed about 6 months ago my lower gums where starting to darken kinda a purple color. the color is starting to move up my gums,now its between my teeth as well. I have been smoking now for about 4 yrs. does anyone know if smoking could have caused this or if it should be looked into. I do not currently have insurance so I am hoping to get some answers from all of u.
Avatar n tn But they were ok at the time, I guess that's just how some people's teeth are. They can have cracks in them close to the surface, but they don't run deep enough to cause problems...that is except for the one I later had crowned. All a part of getting older for most of us, although some lucky people have strong and perfect teeth their whole lives though. Unfortunately I have a bit too much English blood in me to be a member of that club.
1711722 tn?1356491154 i am having periodontal problems during and post tx. i will need some root planing done to get my gums to grip better. as Ohawk said, "a warning for those getting ready to treat".
Avatar f tn I am making an appt with my dentist to have myself checked out. However, just to be clear, my gums are not bleeding. The pink on the toothbrush develops overnight and continues to get worse each time I use it. The pink doesn't immediately appear. In addition, I just bought a Sonicare UV sanitizer and since I've been using it, the pink on my toothbrush has all but disappeared.
Avatar m tn You may want to review your oral hygiene technique. You might be brushing too hard and causing some irritation to the gums.
Avatar m tn I thought that brushing my gum's would help it but ill try to avoid it now and see how i progress. Thanks a lot! And also, do you know how to get rid of red gum's? I've had red gum's since i was like 8.
Avatar f tn I guess I need to clarify that the blackness is not on the gums, my gums stay the normal pink color. The blackness is on the outside around my lips and chin ( going down to my neck). Also the color starts turning back to normal as soon as I remove the dentures. If the color change stayed for any length of time I would be more concern medically but it only occurs while I am wearing the dentures.
Avatar f tn Now my bottom gums are swollen and when I floss they move a little bit. The part of my gums closest to my teeth is a much lighter color, light pink to white. Also, I have a good amount of cavities and still need to get my wisdom teeth out. On my tongue there seems to be some white patches along both sides and I heard that it could be a sign of cancer. I brush my teeth every morning and night (I have for the past couple of years.

Avatar n tn hello just wanted to give another update.We went bsck to the doctor Wednesday to see how many mature follicles we had this time (PRAISE GOD!!!) we had 2 we had a 2.5cm on one ovary and a 1.8 on the other ovary.I had my blood levels checked my Estrogen was 448 they said that was good.My husband had a count of 5.6 million after being washed they said we only needed 2 to 5 million so yesterday we went and had another IUI this one feels much better.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know how long it takes for phenobarb to get out of the system? The vet said approximately 12 hrs, but that is obviously not the case. Also, since this morning he is having unusual smelly penile discharge, but he is still urinating fine. Has anyone experienced this? Is this a something to worry about? Also, I really do not like the effects of phenobarb and am talking to my vet about Zonasimide or possibly Felbamate. Does anyone have experience with these?
Avatar f tn I feel your pain I have tried to get in for allergy tests but they claim I'm too old...ugh. They apparently don't like to do allergy testing on adults as your allergies can change on almost a monthly basis...? Who knew? I find that the only thing that even remotely helps is using claritin nose spray and a sinus rinse, such as the neti pot. I also have a deviated septum...nasty thing. I recently had all of my top teeth removed...
1794093 tn?1357934359 i did decide that i would make sure to get her to the dr at least once a week for the Dr to see the changes as well and for reasurrance that i am doing the right thing...
162948 tn?1205256292 Has anyone had the Mirena IUD and had it removed to ttc. I am just curious how long it took you to conceive after Mirena IUD removal? How long until your menstrual cylces were regular? I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal.
4520139 tn?1355852769 Each time they have had some of the bigger molars removed which are the more expensive ones since they are harder to get out and they usually use a stitch or two to close the gums. I just remembered that they did xrays which added to the cost, so it would have been less without them. With the fewer cleanings I meant that the vet would be more thorough and possibly not leave anything that should have been taken out minimizing the risk and uncomfortableness for kitty.
Avatar n tn Good luck I hope things turn out how you want them to. You may be able to test now that you are expecting to have your period five days from now. The test I used was clear blue. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Call the dentist and describe it and get advice. There may be a rinse or specific floss you can use to get your gums healthy.
Avatar n tn She pick constantly just to get more. Then I read about the camphor in it and pharmastist said NOT to use it for chapped lips b/c it's really desgined to dry out cancer soars, which she doesn't have. Pharmastist and Dr. both rec. vaseline -- white pet. jelly. I read how Petrolatum might be loosely linked to breast cancer and was concerned that it's not rec. my "Dr. Oz" on TV. I switched to Neosporin Adv.
Avatar n tn From what i read above, many of you took several pregnancy tests and the results were negative, but your doctors said you were?? I really want to get pregnant. This is my first month with out the IUD... How long is it going to take? Or, am i already there? Last question, Why do you have to wait for a missed period to take the HPT?? or, 3 days before the missed period? why?
875426 tn?1325532016 We're thinking maybe starting to have her in there a some days earlier to get her used to the idea before guests arrive. Feel free to give advice on this! Thanks for listening and if you would like to see pictures of Catalina, check my photo album! She's gained some weight since we brought her home- but she doesn't like to eat less. She's a little under 12 pounds at last weigh and her age is 4 or 5 now (based on vet guesstimate when we got her).
Avatar m tn I'm 39, I keep my teeth brushed and floss. I went to the dentist for extreme pain in my lower left teeth area. I thought maybe cavity or root canal. Dr said no its perio. I freaked because I take good care of my teeth. My girlfriend says my breath does not smell like perio and my gums are not red they are a nice healthy pink. Anyway, the pain in intolerable and I say do what you have to do. He does a deep perio scrape (not to the root) and sends me home.
612551 tn?1450025775 It was one of the things I tried to get him to eat pills. Eggs and all Dairy are foods our vet advised against...but this was when trying to feed a very limited food and see if the allergy cleared up. It did, but the dog was also on lots of medicine.
192918 tn?1199454779 If the gums are just pink then probably not. DD just got 2 teeth in two weeks and I can see more white buds about to erupt on the bottom. Oh God I am in for more nights lack of sleep LOL!
Avatar f tn it does appear to be a pregnancy symptom..I wonder, though, how early gums would bleed..because if I was pregnant, I think it would be early to have this happen? Oh, I still would love to hope though!
Avatar m tn Should I trust this dentist and proceed with the procedure? Or how can I get a second opinion or diagnose this myself? Some additional notes: my gums are not red or swollen, but rather light pink. I have noticed slightly receding gums on one or two front teeth, but I was brushing very hard with a medium toothbrush (which I have stopped). Any guidance will truly help. I just want to be sure I am not being taken advantage of. Thanks.
Avatar n tn (she drinks about 3 bowl of water a day) -throwing up yellow bile -she seems extremely tried all the time -laping up on herself for hours -and more recently i have noticed that she will lay on the floor and scratch her nose between her two front paws as if her teeth were bothering her (but I look at her teeth and gums and there seems to be no problems) I have looked at her ears they are clean and a healthy pink, her teeth are clean and gums clean as well, her eyes seems a little cloudy and
581210 tn?1220838380 Dear Short Circuited, Well, I do know that steroids can cause a person to get agressive and manic, so that's probably how come all that happened. And funny smells can happen to people who have migraines. And migraines can come from allergies, which a weak constitution can invite those.
413852 tn?1317312312 Good to hear your b/w looks good!!! Fingers crossed!!! SSBD!!!
377012 tn?1283969035 By the time she posted back to Jaybay she could have been there and back already. I don't think it matters how many of us tell her to take the dog to the Vet. I told her to get to the Vet 1 hour after she posted or to at least call the Vet. She talked to a neighbor that works for Fish and Game, she should have gotten more assistance from him than just a phone number to who knows who. I can't believe the dog is 3 years old and doesn't have a regular Vet.
Avatar f tn ( I gave her tylynol last night and about 20 minutes afterwards, she was much better. I think it helped. Blake did this 3 weeks before she cut a tooth (?!) OY!... you mean she has to go through 3 more weeks of this!!! Ughh... poor thing. And, I would definitely call it an episode that she had. That is the perfect term. I was hoping she was goign to be one of those kids who didn't even realize that they were getting teeth until the tooth was already though...
