Sore gums between teeth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums between teeth


Avatar f tn I'm 34+6 and yesterday all of the sudden in between two of my teeth started hurting every time I ate anything. Now today my gums, just where they meet my teeth hurt so bad and it just makes my whole mouth hurt! I've heard that women can get swollen gums during pregnancy, but it never happened with the last two and just surprised me at how fast it came on. Anyone else having this problem? And tips to help it?
Avatar n tn I tried 3 others and this made no difference to the sore gums. Does anyone have any advice, knowledge or suggestions on my problem of sore gums.

Avatar n tn Might this be causing problems to the gums on the other tooth? I am very sore under the chin right where the sore gum is -- I'm assuming that is where my lymph nodes are, and they are sore because I may have an infection? What do you think? Thanks!
440728 tn?1234648902 Does anybody suffer with an awful taste, and burning sore mouth & 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.
Avatar n tn My gum had swollen between two teeth, not considerably but enough to see something wasn't right. My dentist flossed, took an x ray and then did a scale and polish. He said more than likely some food got trapped down there and caused inflammation and the pain will subside. That was 3 days ago now and it's still very much the same despite using some corsodyl mouth wash to try and speed to healing process up.
Avatar m tn Conventional gums hurt my sensitive teeth and gums, anyone know of a gum that is ok for sensitive teeth? Thank you kindly.
Avatar f tn Since then, I've had a feeling of tightness and irritated gums between my two front teeth. Also, my once comfortable bite is now really uncomfortable. It feels as if I'm landing on a different molar every time I close my mouth. My dentist tried twice to adjust the bite and find the reason for the tightness/uncomfortable feeling in the gums around the front teeth. I went to another dentist for a second opinion.
Avatar f tn Doctor: For several weeks now, I have been experiencing a sore throat in an area of my throat on the right side. I have difficulty/pain swallowing occassionally but mostly an itchy/scratchy sensation/feeling. Sometimes I experience pain and swelling on the right side of my mouth. A couple of years ago, my dentist informed me that my wisdom teeth needed to be removed as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn I went to the denist not long ago and got a couple cavities filled, before i went in my teeth felt fine, but after the filling i eat and my gums hurt really bad. I called the dentist to tell them the problem and they said to wash my mouth with salt water and I have been but they still hurt anytime I eat anything. What can I do about it??
Avatar m tn Given the tenderness and discomfot in my abdomen, and my flu-like symptoms, that seems right. My gums are not sore, and the only tooth that is bothering me is the one that broke, as it is now sensitive. I am 55, presumably post-menopausal, as I had a hysterectomy at 35. I do not take hormone replacement.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar f tn Did the dentist say the gum looked healthy or not? Flossing in between the teeth to the gum line will help. Rinse your mouth with salty water after washing your teeth. Or use an antibacterial mouth wash. For bruxism (grinding of teeth), you can get a gum shield to protect your teeth from being worn away from grinding when you sleep. The dentist usually makes it for you to fit over your bottom teeth.
Avatar m tn Do your gums actually hurt, or are they sore? Applying too much pressure with any type of toothbrush can irritate your gums. The cheap spin brushes are harsh, stick with medium to soft bristles, and don't scrub your teeth, just brush them gently. You don't have gingivitis or your gums would bleed. I just think you've been too aggressive in your brushing. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The gums between my front two teeth are the most sensitive. Could this be herpes? It hasn't gone away yet but ive noticed no outbreak externally.
Avatar n tn I have a growth behind my two front teeth. It isn't sore but I do think that it's getting bigger. It is semi-rigid and dome like but there is no pain when I touch it or brush my teeth. Occasionally it does bleed. I have a retainer glued behind my teeth too. I haven't seen a dentist or my orthodontist in over two years but my teeth and gums were given a clean bill of health.
209384 tn?1231171906 I can't believe the stuff that gets blown out from between my teeth with that!! The dentist has seen a lot of improvement in my gums since using it too. Chin up, and for don't lose that goofy sense of humor of yours!! That'll get you through if nothing else does.
Avatar f tn Since that time I have developed the bad habit of sucking my teeth. Better explained I am sucking my gums back through my upper teeth using my tongue and mouth to create the sucking. The skin between my two front teeth is particularly sore. My ortho has never heard of this. If I wear my retainer 24/7 it's prevented. Anyone else ever heard of this and is there help for me?
Avatar n tn Well, I forgot to mention that, for the first time in over two months, the gums around the initial bump are starting to become sore, but only when I press on them. Teeth don't hurt. Additionally, I developed a white lesion on the side of my tongue and the NP at school and my primary physician have called geographic tongue. But my tongue doesn't "change" like it should, from what I've read.
Avatar f tn My gums do not bleed ever or hurt unless I am too violent with the floss or grind my teeth all night. Take care of your teeth and gums more vigilantly during treatment and if you use a routine like mine you will probably be doing the best you can.
Avatar m tn Could be the first outbreak ? I do have muscle aches, slight fever (99.5F) and sore throat. Thanks.
8101930 tn?1420005056 There is a jaw condition you can get during pregnancy. I thought I had a cavity but the pain seemed to move between teeth in a similar spot. You should google it. Your dentist should be able to help.
Avatar n tn I have an 8 day old. My 8 year old came down with a cold sore the day after she was born, I saw the red patch so knew to watch her and keep her far away from the baby. I also took them both to the pediatrician two days ago and the dr. said her cold sore was scabbing and I did what I was supposed to do, good handwashing and keeping the older child away. Yesterday I noticed an irritation on my lip, near the corner, on the bottom lip.

Avatar f tn A triangular piece of skin peeled off my gums between two bottom teeth in the back while I was brushing my teeth. I don't know if any fluid came out, if it did it was while I was brushing and wouldn't notice. The surrounding gums are pale pink. There is no tooth pain, no sensitivity while eating or drinking anything, no fever, and no discomfort at all. I never noticed the formation of a blister or sore or anything so I don't know what happened before this skin peeled off.
Avatar n tn I showed this friend of mine this rash I have and she said she thought it was a fungus? I've had no diaraha, fever just sore neck, nauseaous, rash and sore mouth - are these symtoms of HIV?

Avatar n tn Hi, i just got my four wisdom teeth out 4 days ago, and I can't feel anything on the gums where it was extracted. I also have some pain on nearby teeth around the extraction site around the gums. Like a feeling as if something is actually stuck in between my gums and it's really bothering me and aching. I am alo still slightly bleeding, is there something wrong with my nearby teeth?
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth removed on 1/30/2009, last Friday, On monday, my togue started to "catch" on something, and it begain cutting it open, I assumed it was the stitches, I called the Doc who did my Surgury and went in today (Wednesday), he removed the stitches from the area and called it good, I couldn't feel it catching any more so I then assumed it was the stitches and didnt think any more of it.
660300 tn?1224793961 toungue, lip, chin, very painful jaw, sore teeth/gums, lack of taste etc. Your post brought tears to my eyes as I know exactly what you're going through as I know how scary, painful and upsetting it is. Not to mention being angry about what has happened to you and thinking how on earth can this be better than the odd bout of pain/antibiotics?
