Teeth Rising Out of All Front Lower Gums

10/12/2009

Question:

the last 3 months my lower front teeth have been slowly rising from the gums. To explaine better I can stick my tounge in between the bottom of my teeth and gums on four of the front teeth. They`re very sensitive, if I push on them they hurt and bleed alot. Also my upper right side gums are very swallwen and sore. My dentist said it might be becasue I am not brushing the backs of my teeth as well as the front but I have been doing it better now and they seem to be just getting worse.. I am very worried and just want to know some opinions please . (im female and only 20 years old)

Answer:

This seems to be more than sensitivity or plaque accumulation. It may be also stress related. Please go and visit a periodontist if you still have the same problem.
