Sore gums due to dentures? I've had dentures for about a year now, but recently have been experiencing constant mild gum pain on both my upper and lower jaw. Is this likely due to something being wrong with my dentures, or them no longer fitting right?

Changes in gums

False_teeth
Your gums and bone may have changed allowing the denture to press extra on certain spots. These are called denture sore spots and the dentures may need adjusting by the dentist.

Gum pain and gingivitis? Over the last month one of my upper front teeth has become very sensitive, and now the gum above it is also quite sore. Is this gingivitis? .

Infection

Gingivitis
Sounds like an infected tooth so go to dentist and find out. Generally gum disease is not painful.

Earache, very sore throat, runny nose, chills, body feels weak, teeth/gum pain and nauseous. What can it be and what to do to treat all symptoms?

Perhaps a virus?

Internet_diagnosis
You listed many symptoms which are all probably related. If you see a physician, I'm confident he\she will be able to help you feel better. We can't diagnose and treat you over the internet. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

Gum pain from flu?

Referred pain

Open-uri20130201-21366-t4w1ne
can cause not just the gums but the maxilla or upper jaw and teeth to hurt if there is involvement of sinuses. If there's existing periodontal disease and the immune system is compromised, it will just add insult to the injury.

Dr. Sam Markzar answered:

What causes sudden gum pain?

Any of infections..

Pain
Normally, a periodontal , or gingival abscess can cause such sudden reaction, and in most of cases 24 to 72 hours after eating pop corn or chips, or nuts, where they hide below gum line and detach the gum. Please note that "tooth/root infection" can also cause sudden pain in the gum.
