Loose teeth and swollen gums

User Level:

Posted by: i_need_help  (2 years ago)
Hi

When I was a kid, I was never conscious about the condition of my teeth, so I did not mind taking care of them. When I reached teenage, I had mild bleeding in my mouth whenever I brushed and they hurt whenever I ate a lot of sweets. Now that I’m 20, my bottom gums have swollen and my teeth move a little bit. I also observed that the part of my gums closest to my moving teeth has lighter color, light pink to white. For the past two years, I tried brushing my teeth every morning and night, but it’s just recently that I started using dental floss and mouthwash with fluoride. I also began taking medicines for epilepsy. I wonder if the medication might have been causing these problems because I heard that such medicine could cause teeth problems. I need help, please!!! Is there any way to treat my swollen gums and save my loose teeth? Thanks!

Take a look at my reply to "speedracer" about SEVERE GUM BLEEDING, in this forum, just below your post. My advice is the same. Your problems are caused by plaque being left behind when you brush. Your epilepsy medication may make your gums more sensitive to plaque, but the basic problem is the same - plaque being left on your teeth and gums.
