hpv and gum disease?

Hello guys. I was wondering something. I have hpv and had to have cyrosurgery for it. I just had this done last week!! Well two days ago I went to the dentist and I have gingivitis and early periodontitis. I read a phamplet at the dentist that links hpv to oral cancer. I was like great this is all I need now! I was wondering if any of you guys have had any problems with your gums. Mine bleed when I floss and sometimes when I brush!

Re: hpv and gum disease?

Hi Sarmee,

The link between HPV and oral cancer is mainly involving oral sex, where the HPV infects the cells of the mouth, just as it does our cervical cells.

Most mouth cancers start as sores in the mouth or throat. Bleeding gums is not usually a symptom of oral cancer.

However, if your gums are bleeding, you need to see your dentist. Bleeding gums can be a sign of gingivitis and gum disease, which can cause problems with your teeth.

Big hugs,
