Sore Gums

Your gums are naturally soft and sensitive, so there are many things that can cause them to be sore. You may feel pain on top of your teeth, between your teeth, or all over your gums. In some cases, the soreness may only be in the back of your mouth. In some cases, you may also have visible symptoms such as bleeding or swelling. No matter what is causing your sore gums, it may be worse when you brush, floss, or use mouthwash- especially one with alcohol.

Dr. Isaac V. Perle and the team at Cambridge Dental Group are here to help you determine the cause of your sore gums and treat the issue.

Causes of Sore Gums

There are several causes of sore gums, including oral health issues such as gingivitis, oral thrush, and periodontitis.

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease and is typically the result of poor oral hygiene habits. While not serious, it can advance to a more serious form of gum disease. You will want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Perle and the team to address it as quickly as possible. In most cases, visiting the clinic for a thorough dental cleaning and practicing good oral hygiene will resolve the symptoms.

Oral thrush is a fungal infection that is typically treated with an antifungal medication, which comes in several forms: mouthwash, pill, or lozenge.

Periodontitis is an advanced form of gum disease that typically occurs when gingivitis is not treated early. It is caused by plaque buildup attacking the tissue and bones that support your teeth and can ultimately cause receding gums and loose teeth. Treatment requires an advanced cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. This will remove the bacteria from under your gums. You can prevent it from coming back with proper oral hygiene habits.

  • I had BriteSmile done. My husband had gone to Dr. Perle’s office for the same treatment; he’s gone a couple of time, so he actually referred me. I felt very confident they knew what they were doing. They were professional, the doctor was nice, and the woman who did it explained everything. It worked out very well. I would do it again.

  • My name is Aaron Bickel and they reattached a bridge that had fallen out. I found them to be knowledgeable about the procedure and he explained everything before he did it and did a good job and did what he needed to do. They got back to me very quickly which was good, it was at night on a Saturday. Everything went well. I would recommend them.
