None!: The best thing to keep your gums healthy is good oral home care and seeing your dentist regularly for a regular exams and periodontal maintenance therapy. More than 600 different species of microorganism inhabit the human mouth. Gum disease is caused by the bacteria in your mouth organized in dental plaque. Except for water anything in your mouth can be used by dental plaque to thrive.See 2 more doctor answers
Different ways: There are different kinds of gum sores. Some result from a viral infection, "cold sores", which can cause blisters. When these blisters burst, they often leave a shallow ulcer. Other open sores are from bacterial infections, trauma or an autoimmune reaction. Sores can sometimes be contagious so don't touch the sore with your finger.See 1 more doctor answer
CauseYou don't floss: If you don't floss daily (never skipping days) your gums will continue to bleed. That is because plaque will build up and your gums will have an almost immediate inflammatory bleeding response to its "foreign" nature. Toothbrushing for good oral hygiene is a total myth! If it really worked, there would be no tooth decay or gum disease!See 2 more doctor answers
Brush, floss, rinse.: Regular brushing, flossing, and use of antibacterial rinses i.e. Listerine will likely help reduce you sore gums (gingivitis). Many people just simply brush briefly which only cleans the outside of teeth/gum, but in between+inside are left untouched. Bacteria grow and causes your gum to be sore and bleed etc. Take care of your teeth--u got first 2 sets free, thereafter it's expensive. Good luck, .See 2 more doctor answers
CANKER SORES: Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in mouth and make eating and talking uncomfortable. The exact cause is not known.Stress or tissue injuryis thought to be cause of simple canker sore.Certain foods like citrus or acidic fruits, vegetables likelemons, tomatoes, orange, pineapple, apples, fig and strawberries can trigger a canker sore.Braces, ill fitting dentures can cause it too.
Bad oral habit: Gum chewing is not about the gum or its sweetness. It is about manifesting a compulsive behaviors through the mouth. Seek a consultation with a therapist who manages habits that are delirious to your health. Over the last 38 years, I have seen individuals who require extensive enamel reconstruction from this habit. Still it is better than smoking or chewing tobacco. Only slightly.
Gum boil: Generally the gum boils are treated by drainage of the pus, disinfecting and then filling the infected tooth. Apicectomy, which is the removal of the tip of the root, is done when disinfecting the tooth is not possible. Extracting the tooth is another option when the damage done by the bacterial infection is irreversible.See 1 more doctor answer
Any of infections..: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
Normally No: Chewing gum as a repetitive action can actually increase symptoms. Most people who chew gum chew on only one side of their mouth. This actually is like exercising one arm vs the other so the muscles on the right, for example, become stronger than the oral muscles on the left. An imbalance in occlusion is exactly what you don't need!See 3 more doctor answers
GINGIVITIS: Bleeding gums is a sign of moderate to severe gingivitis. The gums are either invected or irritated by plaque or calculus ont he teeth. See your dentist for a thorough exam and prophylaxis (tooth cleaning). In the meantime start flossing and brushing to remove the plaque. Hormonal changes may also cause gums to bleed.See 5 more doctor answers
Here/there is OK: Sugarless gum is probably not a bad thing. But anything in excess is not a good thing. Sugarless gum contains sorbitol...A laxitive and so excessive use may cause some stomach/intestinal upset etc... Also, excessive chewing will strain your jaws/tmj, wear-out your teeth etc...So, moderation, rorome! Be sensible, stay healthy... Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
