Cut my gums

I was brushing my teeth and my toothbrush slipped and now I have a really cut and sore gum right in the middle, on the top. It just won't heal at all. Any advice on how to make it heal faster.

Re: Cut my gums

There's a great over-the-counter product recommended by dentists called GLY-OXIDE Antiseptic Oral Cleanser. It's a special 10% carbamide peroxide solution (has a different pH than regular peroxide) that you swish around in your mouth for canker sores and minor gum cuts or inflammation resulting from dental procedures, dentures, or as in your case, accidental injury. Definitely speeds up healing.
