Sore gums in back of mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums in back of 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 n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I went to the emergency room and was given a rapid strep test that came back 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 very painful and colored the same way. Also, the infection has spread to my gums and gums feel smooth to my tongue, are red, black, and white, and are also very painful.
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 Greetings, About two weeks ago I woke up randomly with what felt to be sore, inflamed gums near the first molars on each side of my front 4 incisors. I also noticed that the gums 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 back of my front incisors.
Avatar f tn I have never gotten on on my lips but I have been having problems with my bottom right gum at the back 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 every 1-3 weeks 2) numb pain behind right eye and right cheek 3 pain on gums.... He told me it was a recurrent cold sore????
Avatar n tn My gums are very sore and at times bleed when I brush my teeth. It seems that they are sore but it goes away and then comes back again. Not sure if this is an infection??? What else I can use besides tooth paste and mouthwash to help them??? How did I get this I brush my teeth all the time???
Avatar f tn 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 very back 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 gums behind my back tooth.
Avatar f tn For about two months now I have had considerable pain in the very back 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.
Avatar f tn I don't have the answer or I wouldn't be asking. I am hating the hair loss when I just got it back. My mouth is sore just like when I had chemo. Is femara related to chem drugs?
Avatar n tn 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 gums 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 gums were looking better than they had in the past.
Avatar f tn 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), gums or throat. Crusting on the corners of the mouth is also one of the symptoms of thrush.
Avatar n tn Back in Sept 2003 I started with a dry mouth not thrist just 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 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 .
Avatar m tn My outer lips have plenty of them and there are some way in the back 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.
Avatar f tn I did have a very mild problem with sores in the corner of my mouth, in my first TX back in 2006,i found a stevia extract liquid applied directly helped and i also used a mild cortizone cream.

Avatar n tn I originally thought the pain in my cheek was due to me accidentally biting it, but now at the very back of my mouth near my gums, 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 sore and I don't know what is wrong. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn Hello, thanks so much for your reply, well its hard to say if it was sensative because my gums all on that side at the top were so 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 gums has subsided significantly and now its only localized at that one tooth ....
Avatar n tn So about a year and a half ago, i noticed a little growth in the back of my mouth, on the outside of the right side of my 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.
Avatar n tn I am having some wierdness in my mouth lately too. It all started when my tooth in the back 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.
Avatar m tn The bump is before my tonsils in my mouth, If you follow my bottom gums back to the wisdom tooth area, their is a line that starts to run up your mouth. The bump is towards the top of that right around where the hard and soft palate are.
Avatar n tn In the last couple of days, my glands i my neck have become swollen (hard to swollow), now the back of my tounge and my gums are sore, i have also recenetly gotten a cold sore, is there anything you can help me with on this? It's difficult to eat right now because my mouth is so sore?
561705 tn?1234549759 From cuts in the mouth, tooth aches, sore gums, blisters etc. I cut my finger badly with a super sharp knife the other day and it is almost healed up due to the Stevia. It will sting the first couple of times, but then it's fine. I really swear by it.
177554 tn?1256357393 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 back to Florida because of the treatment, and died. They don't show these occurrences in their website. Beware!
Avatar n tn But for the past few days the inside of my mouth - cheeks, lips, back of throat - have felt puffy and irritated. Certain foods even burn the back of my throat. I can tell that everything is slighly swollen. I went to the dentist 2 days ago to have it checked, and she said the crown & gums look fine. She poked at the gums around the crown a bit & this caused some bleeding.
Avatar f tn In the meantime, I wonder if using something to temporarily numb your gums would help desensitize them enough to conform around your denture? In other words, rub your gums 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 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.
Avatar f tn My throat neck and mouth was very sore. The back of my throat was very red and I could feel the lymphadenopathy on the right side of my neck. The area where my gum hurts looked like a sore was forming right around there. Monday I went to the doctor and I was negative for strep but my doctor still treated me for it. I've been on a heavy dose of penicillin for days now and no change. It seems like the sores have spread and their on the roof my mouth, the lower and upper part of my gums.
Avatar n tn However, for the past 2, or 2 1/2 weeks, I have been experiencing some oral problems including very sore gums, sore tongue and a bit of soreness inside my cheek and inner lip. My 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.
