Gums play a major role, too, not only in your dental health, but in your overall well-being. In many instances, swollen and bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease. But for many fibromyalgia sufferers, medical conclusions are yet to be had for teeth and gum issues.
There are times when remote pain can be felt generating from a series of teeth on the left side of the mouth. Days later it can be felt in the right area. On any given morning gums can greet you with a new unique sensitivity not felt days before. Often at first sign, many sufferers scoot to their local dental practitioner only to hear there seems to be nothing visual on the xrays that would explain such discomfort.
Recently, during a routine dental examination I was told I was in the beginning stages of gingivitis. That morning I awoke with a new tenderness on my lower right jaw that was extending around the gum line of several teeth. I know from experience this can come and go like the lost migrating pain I experience throughout my body each day. Nonetheless, I agreed to have the deep cleaning done to prohibit any future infection that may affect my other teeth.
On the day of my cleaning I woke up pain free. The hygienist even noticed that my gums seemed healthy, but continued with the cleaning anyway, injecting localized pain anesthetic into the surrounding tissues. Due to hypersensitivity, I had reactions to the anesthetic and spent days recuperating from the stress of the procedure itself. There has to be a better way I thought.
I began a proactive procedure that has worked like a charm. No more do I experience signs of sensitivity in either teeth or gums. Do this morning and night and feel the joy of renewed, healthy gums.
