Peeling gums

Good day everyone!

I've had my first ever dental cleaning done last week. The day after, I was bleeding a lot after flossing. I have been brushing, flossing, and rinsing everyday with mouthwash as advised by my dental hygienist. Today, I just noticed that my gums around my lower teeth are peeling away. Is this normal after a dental cleaning? What I should do?

Thanks a lot!

Hi!

The oral tissues could have become dry. Use gentle toothpastes. Also, if you are biting the inside of your jaw while sleeping, try to use night guard to help protect the gums.

Hello!

It could be a tissue sloughing. It is usually caused by overly abrasive toothpaste, tissue burn, smokeless tobacco or mouthrinses.
