Sore gums??

Is anyone else suffering with sore/bleeding gums? Up until the last week they've been fine, but now they are absolutely driving me crazy and sooooo sensitive. I have been using Sensodyne because I have a major sensitive tooth, but maybe I've been using it too long and causing my gums to get irritated?

Anyway I once heard to rub Listerine (I think that was the brand) of mouthwash on my gums with a Q-tip. Has anyone else tried this or having any other remedies that work?

God Bless,

Re: Sore gums??

Well I know this is commo in pregnancy, but I would try baby oragel. Tastes Gross, but works. You can even use this in small amounts on sore nipples before and after birth.

Re: Sore gums??

Thanks for the good advice!! I might have to give that a try especially later for my nipples if I can't handle the taste.

Re: Sore gums??

hi angelhansen I have been there with sore gums for the last month.I am 19 weeks pg.and two weeks ago suffered from major abcess that made all of one side of my face swell up listerine does help.The bad thing is I think my abcess is coming back and no dentist wants to help me because i am pg.I had to go to e.r. to get antibiotic and looks like I will be heading that way soon again.And to think they say second trimester is the honeymoon phase lol we get rid of bad symptoms in the first trimester only to get worse in the second lol good luck.

Re: Sore gums??

I know exactly what you mean. Yeah, I don't have morning sickness anymore, but I am still tired. Mainly because I can't get comfortable at night to sleep, and my gums bleed if I eat an apple, and I have terrible heart burn. Yeah, I feel much better than I did the first trimester how about you?

Re: Sore gums??

I feel much better now too, even though I never had any M/S, I had really bad fatigue. My energy level is pretty acceptable now.

Angel, I haven't had any problems with my gums, but I have had constant sinus bleeds and stuffiness. Doc just keeps telling me "that's just part of it."

Mommaofa4yrold, I know what you mean about not being able to get comfy. If I lay one way, my hips hurt, one way, my back hurts, and one way (my side), my tummy hurts from hanging over and being heavy. I even tried out one of those pregnancy pillows yesterday. Didn't help at all.

Re: Sore gums??

MrsBlasalle - I had to have a wisdom tooth removed at 3 months pregnant with baby #1. All you need is a release to treat you from your OB to take with you to the dentist and they will help you. Trust me I know the pain! I had to be awake with local only for the wisdom tooth. Amazingly it did not hurt and my recovery was eassier and with no pain unlike the recovery when I had general anesthesia!! They yank you around more when they know your knocked out.
