Toothaches are never much fun. However, what feels like sensitive teeth may actually be sensitive gums. In Broomfield, CO, good dentists at Total Dental Health Solutions and elsewhere watch out for your periodontal health as well as your teeth whenever they do a checkup, as the two are closely linked. You have to take good care of one to maintain the other, and vice versa. In fact, most gum problems are avoided simply by regular brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist twice a year. The little things you do every day can add up to a lifetime of oral health and freedom from mouth pain.
Sensitive gums form from irritation and gingivitis, which are common oral health issues that a visit to the dentist can take care of. Talk to yours as soon as possible if you’re dealing with gums that are swollen, tender, bleeding very easily, or if you have bad breath. The dentist can likely determine the root issue and figure out the best way to fix it. Some possible causes of problems like these are:
- Loose Fillings
- Receding Gums
- Tooth Fractures
- Teeth Grinding
- Worn Tooth Enamel
