What Might be Causing Your Gums to Hurt?


While it is obviously important to care for your teeth, it is just as wise to remember that the gums play an important role in regard to the overall health of your mouth.

What if you have begun to notice pain or swelling? What causes these symptoms? Although it is always crucial to seek the advice of a professional dentist, a handful of scenarios should also be addressed.

One of the most common causes of pain in the gums involves late-stage periodontal disease. There are also instances when an infection in one or more teeth may cause your gums to hurt.

Certain types of pain may result from improper brushing and flossing techniques (such as if too much pressure is applied). To recap, here are some of the causes of gum pain:

  • You could be suffering from periodontal disease.
  • You might have a tooth infection.
  • You may be applying too much pressure when flossing and brushing.

“Throbbing gum pain may be accompanied by gum swelling, redness, or even a bad taste in your mouth.”
