Most Common Causes of Aching Gums

Posted on 6/22/2020 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
It's easier to determine the causes of a headache than those of aching gums. For a headache, you probably need a few hours of sleep or have to drink water and eat some food. However, when your gums ache, it can be a huge challenge trying to decipher what the cause is exactly. It is similar to a headache though, in that it could be coming from a wide range of reasons. Let's explore some of them. Did I Physically Bring Pain To Myself? Sometimes you're in such a hurry to leave the house that you end up brushing your teeth in flash-speed and in the process bruise yourself. This causes your gums to ache for at least the entire morning. Similarly, if you use too much force when brushing your teeth, you cause friction that makes your gums hurt on a regular basis. You should also be careful with the dental hygiene products you use as well as the kind of food you eat to ensure that you are not allergic to any of them. Burns caused by hot food or beverage can also be detrimental to your gums. Is My Body Trying To Tell Me Something? Pain is a great way of determining where something is not going right. Aching gums could be a result of growth and hormonal imbalance during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. The gums receive high levels of blood pumping which make them swell causing the aching. Other causes include mouth ulcers, gum disease, loose teeth, oral cancer and dentures that don't fit perfectly. It is also advisable to stay away from smoking tobacco or even chewing it. Aching gums could be brought about by a combination of these causes or just one. Contact our office today for information on how to get rid of that discomfort that is getting in the way of your perfect smile....
