Sore Gums Please Help

Posted by: ToriaG  (8 years ago)
For about a month, I've been having a pain on only one part of my gums. The part in between two teeth hurts really bad, but that's the only area. It's really sensitive so I tried brushing my teeth gently but that hasn't changed anything. I floss regurarly and brush my teeth 3 times a day. Everytime I floss or brush though that part of my gums bleed. Anyone know what it is and what I can do for it?

Could be an ulcer, could be inflammation from an open contact. Need to see your dentist to diagnose for sure.

ToriaG, so sorry to hear about your pain. Best thing to do is go to your dentist to have your gums checked as soon as possible. I read a post on thisisdentistry.co.uk that said gum problems should be checked immediately, so they do not have the chance to worsen into something more complicated (like periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss). Bleeding gums are a common symptom of gingivitis - which can be treated by deep cleaning treatments. Good luck!
