But now, whenever I floss, my lower front gums get very, very sore afterwards. Rinsing with the "gum and teeth tonic" they gave me (not an antibiotic rinse, just some all-natural solution with oils in it) relieves it some and popping an ibuprofen definitely helps and the pain is gone within half an hour and doesn't come back until I floss again. There's no bleeding and brushing it doesn't hurt at all. My gums everywhere else in my mouth feel totally OK and don't get sore when flossing like this one area does.
It's weird because I was measuring 2/3 there before the cleaning. I've tried going more gentle with the flossing but no luck... is this normal? What's going on?
