irritated but not painful gums?

I don't have any actual pain and there is no bleeding or visible swelling as they describe for gum disease. My gums are just irritated on the one side of my mouth and make me feel like I should be chewing something to make them feel better. It's almost as if I am teething. I was just wondering if anyone knows of anything that might give me some relief or if it is something that I should be contacting a dentist about.

Re: irritated but not painful gums?

Do the gums appear red in colour? Do your gums ever bleed upon brushing, even just on that side?

Gingivitis is the first form of gum disease and pain is not normally associated with it. Voice your concerns to your dentist if it persists!
