I hope you can all help me, So I'm just turned 30 I've had bleeding gums since I was about 9 years old and always told not to worry about it. As a usual child I didn't up until about 3 years ago when I had to change dentists due to moving to another part of the country. They advised that I had gum disease and the bleeding was something to worry about. Since then I've had problems with my lower right side (Impacted wisdom tooth) Removed at the hospital under a G/A and also my Lower Left side (2 Fillings on the back).
My lower right has always had a moderate ache on there since, it was 18 months since it was removed and also when I was there was told my bone was pretty gone in my front of my teeth on the lower. I've also started grinding my teeth in about the last 6 months on the lower right.
The dentist tells me I need a clean and its not at the major stage, but I'm concerned he only looks and is very quick about it.
Anyways I've had a clean on Monday and since then the bleedings stopped and I'm continuing to work on my brushing, using the dye tablets. But since then my top front teeth feel really sore, the only way I can describe is if I put pressure on them like push them up it feels like pulsing.
I'm back at the hygienist in 3 months but am I just being paranoid, or do I make another appointment with the dentist. and what do I insist on?
