My bottom front gums hurt and are receding :(

Hello, 3 days ago i noticed a bump on one of the gums behind one of my tooth and then the next morning all bottom front row gums were swollen and receding and they only hurt when i put pressure on them, i don't know what that means, they don't bleed when i brush, they just hurt and are receding, and i don't have dental insurance, my parents never got me it, only health insurance so i can't go to the dentist and haven't been to one in more than 10 years, i really don't want to lose my teeth just cause i can't afford dental health some one help me please?!

Re: My bottom front gums hurt and are receding :(

Hi,
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but you do need to get to a dentist.
Your gums may be receding due to periodontal disease. You can't treat this by yourself.

A good cleaning may be all you need at this point. That will be FAR cheaper than if you let it wait until your teeth become loose .

Please make an appt. to see your dentist. It's the very best thing you can do for yourself at this point (and the cheapest).
