According to my dentist I have healthy gums and teeth and I have regular check ups. However, I suffer badly from sore, swollen gums at the immediate base of various teeth - particularly lower jaw. It seems as if my gums react really easily to anything that may "bruise" them. It really pulls me down as my mouth never feels quite right. I am on a waiting list for further investigation at the hospital. In meantime, just wonderd if anyone else had same thing and had any advice.
