Sore gums heal

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums heal


Avatar m tn As the gums around the tooth socket continue to shrink/heal I have developed a very sore spot on the lip side of my gums 4mm below the edge of the socket. Upon feeling & looking at it it appears that the top part of the tooth socket cracked and there is now a rough edge along this fracture with a sharp edge below the gums. (This fracture feels like it goes all the way down to the base of the gum area but is more subtle further down). Whenever I smile or move my lips it is sore.
Avatar m tn Thanks for that. That's gotta hurt plenty! Dentures on open bleeding sore gums. Not looking forward to it one bit.
Avatar f tn Having a molar extracted, especially if it was impacted and they had to actually cut into your gums, can take quite a long time to heal. Not only because it's a bit of minor "surgery," but also because we have to eat and even if you are careful not to chew on that side, food particles can still lodge in the wound and become infected. You absolutely need to see your dentist.
Avatar f tn I had my right upper and lower Wisdom teeth extracted along with the molar in front of my left upper wisdom tooth. Everything seemed to go fine and I seemed to heal well, My gums had even started to grow around one of the stitches in my upper left molar. I had my stitches out 9 days later. That was about a week ago, and now I noticed that the gums on my upper left side near the molar are a purple-ish color? It is also still sore when I swallow, but only on that upper left side.

Avatar n tn Sore gums can be common in pregnancy cause your baby it taking nutrition from you. Tell your OB/Midwife but also call your dentists. They might be able to give you tips and will probable check you for an infection. Also try swishing coconut oil for 10-20 min a day and rinse with warm water. It eases gum pain and helps you heal. It's grainy when you start but warms up. Try working yourself from 1tsp up to a whole tablespoon full at a time.
Avatar m tn I was in a relationship with a girl who a got cold sore about four months ago. I never noticed cold sores on her while we were intimate and never noticed anything on me until about three months ago. I just wanted to know if it was possible for HSV-1 to react without the typical cold sore symptoms and just cause cuts on my lips and red rashes. The cuts usually heal in a day or two and are some times red. I am also in the sun working most of the day so could this be the cause.
Avatar n tn Chills, mild fever that came and went; still bottom gums inflamed and now spreading to upper gums. SORE THROAT developed quickly.

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.

Avatar m tn 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 gums on the left side is sore. Sometimes the top area is sore too. I thought i was biting it in my sleep, but the area is way below where i can bite. also, my 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.
Avatar f tn I take extremely good care of my teeth so I was surprised when I discovered that the top right side of my gums and my bottom right side of my gums (exact spot), appear to be irritated and sore. I went to bed knowing that the bottom was irritated, but I thought it might just be a canker sore, and when I woke up, the top was irritated too. Any ideas of why this happened or what it could be a sign of? Thank you in advance!
Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar m tn The preparation several weeks ago was quite painful and my gums were swollen and tender for a week, but felt fine by the time I had the permanent bridge placed yesterday. The new bridge, itself feels fine, but the gum around the back tooth is very swollen and it looks like there is a white line around the base of the crown (which is gold). The white line almost looks like the gum is trying to heal (maybe new gum tissue?
175662 tn?1282213656 Well Nadezdha is 7 months old now, and over the last two weeks I have gotten very sore. To the point that I have sores on my left nipple and around it on the aerola (sp). This concerns me because it looks pretty bad. Tonight I pumped like usual after work and noticed that it looked like it has a rash now, with damaged skin as well as small scabs. I'm not sure what is going on, but wondering if this could be something I really need to worry about.
1740952 tn?1310964996 At this point, you'll probably have to just keep the area clean by brushing on it gently and keep an eye on it. It may take a few more weeks to fully heal. At that point, if the gums don't heal all the way up, it'll probably remain that way unless you do a gum graft to cover up the root again.

6323602 tn?1380323698 t experience facial swelling after the wisdom teeth are removed, but it will take a few weeks for the gums where the wisdom teeth have been extracted, to heal. For your severe periodontal disease, clean your teeth morning and night time and floss every day. The flossing will help to get your gums well again, but you will find that they will bleed, but that will gradually stop.
Avatar n tn 13 days ago my upper left (last) molar was extracted. It was large and hard to get out. A week later (this past Monday) the stitches were taken out. At that time I was told by the assistant that there was food trapped in the cavity due to the stitches and she irrigated it. She gave me the syringe she used and instructed that I do the same several times a day for a few days because food continues to stay in there.
