Does throbbing gums mean infection?

I notice that my gums sometimes throb. They don't hurt or anything, but they throb as if though I just got done brushing my teeth or flossing. I notice it when I eat or even swish water around in my mouth. Is that because the gums are getting stimulated or can you have an infection without pain? Thanks to all!

Hi singer1,

Have you seen a perio about your gums? I sometimes have that throbbing feeling in my gums and have recently been told that I have gingivitis. Arg. I really didn't like hearing that considering bad gums run in my family (paternal) and I am really good with keeping up with my oral hygiene. In the meantime, you may want to buy a rubber tip and run that against your gumline once a day. Then finish off with listerine (of course, after the usual brushing & flossing).

Good luck!
