I have gums that swell and receed at times due to allergies so once in awhile..when the gums receed a lot.. I will get little buring areas..friction burns basically..under the lower ones.
I got to mention that once I got a toothache..monster sudden toothache/jaw ache.. except of course I have no teeth! Went to a Dr and he said it was from a tiny unnoticed scratch under the dentures that had gotten food in the unnoticable scratch and that had caused a jaw infection. That got worse before it got better and I had pus sores visable on my jaw bones and throat.. that situation hurt a lot. Dr told me he would give me the antibiotics but "next time" I should go to a Dentist and get those teeth re-fitted!
