I have this problem too. So, I am waiting on an answer as well. I do not like my smile bc.I tend to show all my gums on the top teeth.I mean you can see fromt the front to both sides of my mouth (gums) that is.Whenever I try to put my teeth together I can feel some pressure. My top teeth appear to sit over my bottom teeth. Will braces help correct these issues? THX Wide Smile:) Hello wondering if, that your gums that stick out more than you teeth are a result from having you wisdom teeth removed? Or that you feel that there is a pressure that is making you gums pop out?

What causes sore gums?

Sore gums are a common symptom of poor oral health. They are very common in adults and teenagers. There are six common causes for sore gums: teething, impacted teeth, an injury, gum disease, cancer, and mouth ulcers. Teething is a painful process where the teeth force their way through the gum surface. This process is necessary, but creates very sore gums. Teething is usually completed in childhood, with the exception of wisdom teeth, which can appear in the teenage years or early twenties. An impacted tooth can also create sore gums. When a tooth is coming through the gums, it can develop at the wrong angle. As a result, the tooth can become stuck or impacted and must be extracted by a dentist. Sore gums can occur if there is any type of impact to the teeth or gums with a hard object, such as furniture or the floor. These types of injuries are quite common in contact sports, such as hockey or football. Mouth guards are designed to absorb the impact and reduce the chance of injury to the teeth and gums. Gum disease or periodontal disease is very common in adults and is the leading cause of sore gums. Gum disease weakens the attachment of the teeth to the gums. It is caused by an infection in the gums due to the presence of tarter on the teeth, at the gum line. This type of infection is called gingivitis, with its most noticeable symptom being sore gums that bleed when the teeth are brushed. Sometimes, there are no symptoms other than sore gums. Untreated gingivitis can progress past the point of sore gums. The gums can swell, bleed, and change color. If gingivitis is not treated, the sufferer runs the risk of having his teeth become loose and fall out. Mouth cancer is very serious and some of the first symptoms are sore gums, bad breath, and teeth that move. Other symptoms include red or white patches in the mouth, bleeding, and trouble swallowing. Mouth cancer is most commonly found among people who smoke cigarettes or chew tobacco, but can develop in other people as well.

What is periodontal disease's major cause of tooth loss in?

Most forms of gum disease involve the infection and erosion of gums. In some cases, it spreads below the gums to infect the bone that supports the teeth. Gum disease is seen in various stages, from a mild condition (Gingivitis) that is easily reversible to severe forms (Periodontitis) that require more comprehensive treatment.Signs of gum disease can be seen in certain regions or across the entire gums. These include:.Red gumsSwollen gumsPainful gumsGums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, making them appear longer than beforeLoose or shaking teethPus in the gumsBad breath which is persistent.Like most dental diseases, gum disease is a progressive disease. In the initial stages, the infection is limited to the gums. If left untreated, this gradually spreads to the bones supporting teeth and starts eroding them. Eventually, the teeth lose their vital bone support and start shaking. At this stage, one may experience difficulty in performing simple tasks like chewing due to loose teeth, and also suffer from persistent bad breath. Therefore, the earlier the treatment is sought, the lesser the damage done.All gum treatments at Dentzz are performed by certified Periodontists with international training and numerous scientific publications to their name.
