Im 30. Baby Tooth extracted yesterday. Why is the socket white? There was a thin film which i rinsed out. Not swollen or painful at all. Im on antibio

Baby tooth

Head-teeth
The roots of the baby tooth were probably resorbed, so there was no real socket. The white area is the gum tissue that grew in under the tooth to fill in the area where the roots were.

I have a red line on my top gum with white blotches and pain on the side of the palate. I took antibiotics and the pain went away. The pain returned, so I had to take more tablets.What is going on?

Needs to be seen

Call_dentist
These types of situations should not and cannot be diagnosed over the internet. It requires at least an actual visual one on one personal clinical examination. Please see your dentist as soon as possible to determine what in fact is wrong and what treatment is indicated.

What are the causes of children's bleeding gums?

Poor oral hygiene

Bleeding
Poor oral hygiene effort (brushing and flossing) along with frequent occurence of food impaction areas(stainless steel crown margin, diastema and/or crowding) causing localized gingival inflammation. Most of these food impactions will result in cavities development and gingivitis but RARELY lead to bone loss or periodontitis except in the case of LJP of which neutrophil function defect is found.

Whats the treatment for recding gums?

Depends

Obstruction
Dr Spector is absolutely correct. Gum recession can be caused by overly aggressive traumatic oral hygiene. Recession can be caused by poor oral hygiene with resultant gum disease. It can also be caused by teeth expanded beyond their bone support or by traumatic occlusion. Ask your Dentist if consultation w Periodontist, Orthodontist, or both, is in order.

What do I do if my gums are itritatef?

See a dentist!

I agree with the previous answer that you need to pay great attention to your oral hygiene, but it's also important to see a dentist. When plaque calcifies and becomes tartar/calculus, you can't remove it with a toothbrush. It has to be removed w/ instruments in the dental office. Call your dentist to schedule a cleaning & exam.

my gums always bleed.is it normal?

Sign of problem!

Open-uri20130109-18154-11lmiye
If you started bleeding from anywhere else on your body, would you consider it normal? Obviously not. Bleeding gums are a sign of some problem. The most common cause of bleeding gums is gingivitis or periodontal disease, although there are many others, both of dental and medical origin. See a dentist as soon as possible for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
