  • Very swollen and red gums after routine dental cleaning

    I am sorry to hear your gums are so sore after your cleaning. Why your gums are so inflamed and sore is a difficult question to answer without knowing your exact situation. However, I will give a few possibilities as to why this may be happening to you: - The type of cleaning may have changed. There are various types of cleanings that vary on the depth of treatment around the tooth root. A routine or basic cleaning, usually called a prophylactic cleaning is most common and usually involves minimal invasiveness in the gums. There are also more involved cleanings such a full mouth debridement, or scaling and root planing which is appropriate in the presence of periodontal disease and tends to be much more invasive with a greater chance of inflammation and soreness. - More time may have passed between the standard 6 month hygiene appointment. This would potentially allow for increased plaque buildup around the teeth and gums with subsequent greater swelling. - Medication, diet, or health changes may have occurred. Many medications increase the chance of gum swelling. Health concerns such as diabetes also play a strong factor in overall gum health and recovery ability. - Different hygienist than you normally see. Dental professionals are just like everybody else. We all have different personalities, abilities, and skill levels to perform certain tasks. Some hygienists are more skilled than others, and you may have encountered a hygienist who was not as delicate at her cleaning as you have experienced in the past. Regardless of the cause, I would recommend you contact your dentist to address this issue. The dentist will likely recommend some anti-inflammatory medication, warm saltwater rinse, and/or some sensitivity toothpaste if you have increased sensitivity in the teeth. READ MORE

  • What is a dry socket?

    First off, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Dry sockets can be quite painful. Thankfully, they are easily treated. When a tooth is extracted, a hole is left in the bone where the tooth once was. This hole usually fills up with blood, which then clots together forming a kind of cover and protection to the empty tooth socket, while the area heals. A dry socket occurs when that protective clot has been dislodged or lost, and the tooth socket becomes exposed to air and everything else. This can be quite uncomfortable, or even painful, but is not usually dangerous. Treatment normally consists of the dentist placing a small gauze material that has been coated with a special dry socket paste in the exposed socket. It is relatively painless (no anesthetic needed), and gives almost immediate relief. Thanks for your question, Blake Shreeve DMD READ MORE
