swollen gums after crowns

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Teresa  (1 years ago)
On November 28 this year I had 12 crowns put on with root canals. My gums are still swollen and a couple bleed a bit when I brush. When will they heal totally? How should I be taking care of my gums? Is this normal?

It is not normal for gums to bleed. It means there is gum inflammation. The most frequent cause is plaque being left under the gum, but sometimes it can be caused by rough crown edges. The best thing you can do is to use a quality sonic toothbrush such as the oral B pulsonic, and a floss like Oral B SATIN TAPE. Make sure you are flossing slowly under the gum edges as far as the floss will go. If you are not sure how to do this, get your dental hygienist to show you, and to check how you are doing it.
