Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding receding gums


Avatar n tn When she said to look closely into her mirror, boy did I get a shock - gums receding high above the enamel of my teeth, revealing a discoloured area which was clearly not how it should be. 'How do you brush your teeth? she asked 'Hard and with a stiff brush' I replied 'there's your problem' she said - I hadn't even mentioned that I'm partial to a couple of glasses of red wine most evenings.
Avatar f tn ve had two little chips in different teeth and am now worried that my gums are receeding. They look healthy and feel fine. I take pretty good care of them, too but there's a few that just seem like they aren't tight to the tooth. They can move back a little when I touch them. I have an appointment in a month but I am wondering can my teeth change so drastically that my dentist would have seen no signs?
Avatar n tn You should probably go to a dentist to get it checked out. It may be due to the gums receding in the area and exposing the root, resulting in some sensitivity. It can also be due to other reasons such as abfraction, in which you are grinding/clenching your teeth and its causing wear and tear at the neck of the tooth and thinning the area out. Try some sensitivity toothpaste as well.
Avatar n tn If they're only receding in the front, you might have the same issue as me. I'm 20 and my gums started receding rapidly this year. 3mm in less than 6 months! I found out the cause was my frenum on my lower gums was attached too high and just got a frenectomy today. My dentist didn't have a clue why my gums were receding, but they referred me to a periodontist who immediately told me that was the cause. But you should try to get it taken care of asap...
Avatar f tn I have some teeth that are brown near the gum line. I've never had a cavity but my gums seem to be receding in some areas and my teeth have become more sensitive to touch, heat and cold. Does brown teeth near the gum line usually signify calculus, or problems with the roots? Not sure if a periodontist is best if teeth are also involved.
Avatar f tn Do you think that grinding teeth can cause the lower teeth to become loose and cause periodantal disease - or receding gums?
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 Two years ago I had a bit of a receding gum on my front right tooth but it never hurt so I put off going to the periodontist. Besides that, I go to the dentist every six months and he always says what healthy gums and teeth I have (besides that front tooth, which he has been bothering me to get looked at). Yesterday I had some pain in one of my side bottom teeth and saw that it was a receding gum that was exposing some of the root.
Avatar f tn As the dentist found nothing wrong with the tooth and gum that is good. I take it that he didn't say that you have sensitive teeth then? If you have receding gums you may find it is very sensitive to hot, cold and sweet food and drinks. If that is the case, you can purchase the toothpastes for sensitive teeth. It builds up over time and the sensitivity gets less with time.
Avatar f tn I have 2 teeth that have receding gum around that are so sensitive its so painful to brush my teeth that side, what do i do ? I already use sensitive toothpaste & mouthwash. Its driving me mad !
4274823 tn?1388529098 t beat the agony of an abscess (pressure pushed a hole through my gum!) Some of my teeth have receding gums and I also have TMJ but this condition has improved. *** Excerpt from AltMD article - The Thyroid and Dental Health Connection... "The greater risk for infection (or lessened ability to fight it), impaired ability to heal tissues, and poor circulation, and other factors contribute to decreased dental health in hypothyroid adults1. This has been reported as far back as 1888.
Avatar f tn Hello, i was diagnosed with strep throat and have been given amoxicillin to take twice a day for ten days. I noticed my gums are receding and making it very painful to eat, brush my teeth, etc. I also have a blister on my bottom lip, which I've never had before so could i possibly have an std? Or is this all caused by the strep and should go away with the antibiotics?
Avatar f tn m 25 I have no insurance and just the last 6 months my teeth have been breaking off and acting up i did go see a dentist to get 2 teeth removed, But now my the gum on my lower teeth i can actually move and pull away from the teeth. Am I worrying to much? because remind you I bleach my teeth and i have calcium deposits on the gums.
Avatar f tn However, I have what I believe to be the same problem as the original poster here... My bottom two teeth were loose and the gums were receding. These two lower front teeth eventually fell out maybe two years ago and now I have a third right there by the gap that's slightly loose. In the mean time, the gums where the two teeth were seems to be OK, though I'll have to have someone look at this. This makes it very hard to tare anything apart, I.E.
Avatar m tn My dentist said I have advanced gingivitis. My teeth are kinda loose, my gums are receding, and my gums are bleeding when I brush my teeth. She prescribed my prevident, gave me a mouthwash and told me to use colgate. My gums or teeth never hurt. After about two days using those stuff, my gums stopped bleeding. Are my gums gonna grow back? I don't want my teeth to fall out! I'm scared!
703897 tn?1248019974 I am curious as to why a receptionist at a dentists office would deny a patient information on a crown that has been put on 6 months ago and still is irritating someones gums. I asked if I could get the materials used to make the crown and what lab it came from, I also wanted to know what type of materials the dentist used to put the crown on with thinking I may be allergic to the materials used. The dentist's office denied me this informaton.
Avatar m tn Within the last 2 days i have had bleeding, swollen gums around certain teeth at the front of my mouth when i brush, excess saliva, closing up of the throat but not enough to stop breathing etc what could this be from ??
Avatar f tn Hello mommies I have been having some teeth pain and my gums have been mildly bleeding which happined with both of my other pregnancys but I just uped my brushing and flossing and it went away. This time my teeth are sore when I get up in the morning and the bleeding is getting worse! My bf told me after I mentioned it that I have been grinding my teeth at night.

Avatar m tn Hello, For about last 6 months, i am going to dentist with complain of loose teeth, receding gums & tingling sensation on, everything happening with lower jaw front side. The dentist only cleans a little bit & examines me every 20 days. But even now I have the same problem. it did not make any difference. An x-ray was also performed & my it looked ok without any problem. What should I do now? Please advise!
Avatar m tn a month or so later I noticed everytime I pressed against the 2 teeth I would spit blood this scared me so unfortunatly i buried my head in the sand a bit meanwhile my gums were pulling away so much so that I went from lifting my lip and seeing gums and little teeth to no gums and long teeth and the lump although initally hurt now no longer did although is still there.
Avatar m tn I KNOW THIS IS LONG AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE LENGTH BUT PLEASE READ AND REPLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS CAUSING THIS HORRIBLE ALMOST UNBEARABLE PAIN. I am a 67 year old senior male that because of age and a lousy dentist my gums started receding until most of my teeth became loose. My new dentist advised me that he could probably save maybe 6 or 7 of the teeth but the rest would have to be extracted.
