Sensitive Gums

hoto for sensitive gums for evolve toothbrush, best for sensitive gumsIt’s ironic.  The gums that surround our teeth are very delicate, but we don’t treat them with kid gloves.  More often than not we brush against them too harshly, or floss around them too aggressively.  No wonder we end up with red, swollen, sometimes painful and sensitive gums. 

If you discover one morning after you’ve too-quickly brushed your teeth that your gums are sore and puffy, that your sensitive gums are now inflamed, do not ignore it.  You could well have gingivitis, the early signs of gum disease.

Because many of us aren’t taught much about oral hygiene, these early symptoms might seem unimportant: you might decide it was something you ate, or that you brushed too strongly.  But pay attention.  If you don’t treat these problems right away, you are creating potentially huge dangers for your mouth.  Sensitive gums, for example, that become purplish, puffy or red shout WARNING!  Healthy gums should look firm and pink and vibrant.  If you see blood on your toothbrush or in the water that you spit out, and your sensitive gums are tender to the touch, you have gum trouble.

So be mindful.  If your sensitive gums don’t go away, if you find a persistent bad taste in your mouth, or loosening teeth, these are all early gum disease signs.  The good news is that you can take some simple steps immediately and begin to reverse it.  Look carefully at your oral health habits, and begin to diligently brush your teeth, floss, rinse, and have regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning by your dentist.
