…and I don’t know why!
It started a fwe days ago. The gums on the bottom half, near where the check hits the gums, are very sore. They don’t seem to bleed, but it could just be getting washed away with the saliva.
They hirt a lot when I have certain liquids in my name…anmely, all of them save one (which I will get to later on.) As soon as a little fluid gets down in that little gap between the gum and the cheeck, insta-pain. And it lasts for a minute or so afterward. It’s best described as stinging, thoguh not quite. If I don’t put any food or liquid in my mouth for a while, or do anything else to iriritate it, it ain’t so bad. But if I eat, drink, or brush my teeth, pain. Lots of it.
I don’t think it’s gingavitis, because I have been brushing with Listerine toothpaste for the past three weeks, and have been usung generic listering outhwash for the past three weeks as well. Granted, I occaisonally only brush and rinse once a day, but that still is not enoguh time for gingavitis, is it? I admit, though, that I don’t floss that often. But I never really have before, and the listerine has always been enough to keep bad things away. And, oddly enough, listerine is the only liquid that doesn’t hurt my gums, and actually after I use it they don’t realy hurt at all, evne if I drink some water or eat. That, to me, seems really odd.
A freind suggested my wisdom teeth are coming in, but it’s not an ache, liek I would expect, and also, the soreness is not at the back but rather right beneth my current molars.
Any suggestons on what to d (other than see a dentist, since I can’t realy do that at the moment) would be appreciated.
