The gums are sore around a crown. Is this normal? What does it mean?

The gums are sore around a crown. Is this normal? What does it mean?

Sore gums: The crown may be too big and not seal the margins (where the tooth meets the crown). This can allow bacteria under the crown and cause irritation to the gums. Or there can be recurrent decay or bacteria under the gums, that can be caused by not flossing or brushing enough or properly. These are just 2 examples, xrays and exam will be needed.

I had a deep clean 1 week ago. My gums are sore, red, and itchy. Is that normal? I was fine before it.

I had a deep clean 1 week ago. My gums are sore, red, and itchy. Is that normal? I was fine before it.

Not fine: Your gums were not "fine" before the procedure, just asymptomatic. You needed the deep cleaning, which is a surgical procedure, because you had gum disease. You are now healing from that surgery. If you have concerns, return to the treating General Dentist or Specialist Periodontist who did the surgical procedure for a reevaluation.

Is there an STD that causes a sore throat and gum pain?

Is there an STD that causes a sore throat and gum pain?

Yep: Syphillis is one std that causes sores. They are called chancres. They can be located anywhere in the mouth. Go see a doctor and a round of antibiotics could clear up the whole problem. Just don't have any physical contact with anyone until you are cleared. Not a nice "gift" to give to others.

My gums are sore I have enamel wearing off my front teeth and that is where my gums are sore

Without: Without a clinical exam you have not provided enough information to hazard a guess as to what your problem is. The first impression is that you might be brushing too aggressively in that area or that you are clenching you teeth for extended periods of time. You need to schedule an exam with you dentist to get to the bottom of the problem and to be given treatment recommendations.

I had 2 wisdom teeth removed from my upper left. This was over a week and a half ago and my front teeth/gums are sore and painful. Is this normal?

Sore or painful gums may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. This is a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist. See your dentist for evaluation. Do not delay,
