Upper Gums Suddenly Bleeding Around Every Tooth When I Brush

Orthodontist: Please speak to your orthodontist.

Need a cleaning: If it has been a long time since you had your teeth cleaned, there may be tartar and calculus below your gumline. This can cause inflammation and make your gums bleed very easily, even with a soft toothbrush. The problem will get better when it is removed, but you will need to see a dentist.

Tooth extracted 2 1/2 weeks ago and notice the gums hurt next to other teeth when I eat. The site doesn't hurts, just gums around it. Suggestions?
Adjustment: often with a tooth is extracted and there is a tooth in front and behind that tooth removed, there will be a slight shifting of the adjacent tooth that can cause a temporary soreness to either the tooth and/or gum tissue. If there was an infection present, sometimes that takes a while to resolve and can also cause transient irritation. If persistent, go back for post op to provider who extracted ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
