Sore Gums at the Dentist’s Office? – Do You Have Gum Disease?

book[1]Trust me when I say I have been there: Every time they probe your mouth to check for pocket depth it feels like someone is driving a pin straight down to your heart. Do you know that feeling too?

You see, you might think that is normal, but it really is not. If your gums are healthy, you really won’t feel that kind of irritation and pain. When your gums are well, it really doesn’t bother you when they poke and prod your gums. You really don’t feel it. So, if you are feeling it, it most likely means you have some form of gum disease. Your dentist will be able to confirm for you.

Really, you are not alone. There are a ton of people with this problem. One of the worst characteristics of periodontal disease is that few people realize they have it until it is pointed out to them or until the damage has been done. That means that gum recession, or worse, loose teeth have become evident.

Most of the time, your dental professional will be more than willing to step in with some type of expensive treatment that may also be painful after the medicine wears off. Sometimes, it is too late to avoid this.

Many people misunderstand two things about gingival disease. One, they misunderstand how widespread it is. Two: People think that stopping is as easy as brushing and flossing more. That is not always the case. Follow the links below to learn what you can do to stop or prevent gum disease and keep it from coming back.
