Yes Ive had teeth cleaning and ive switched up plenty with tooth paste over the years. Its been going on for awhile.. It comes and goes, when it comes it really bothers my gums the itching.
I meant to say also no my gums do not bleed and they arent soar just itch bad from time to time like im teasing... Of course I cant be teasing at this age
DearCustomerbr /> Thank you for the additional information and patience. As you have got your your teeth cleaning done i will rule out the possibility of the gingivitis, gingival inflammation which does cause itchy gums. Changing tooth pastes or certain food allergies can also cause itichy gums, It is highly possible that you are allergic or sensitive to some ingriedients in a particular tooth paste, though difficult to diagnose here the best would be to stick to an natural and herbal tooth paste for sometime and see if it works.As your gums itch you can try using orajel, it is a topical benzocaine gel( an analgesic) which can be obtained from any pharmacy nearby you, this will provide you relief.You can also try gargling with some diluted Hydrogen Peroxide ( water : hydrogen peroxide ratio should be 5:1) Have a look at the link also:Gums itchOther than this brushing correctly is more important [to avoid plaque build ups ] than the number of times you brush, have a look at this link for for proper brushing technique:BrushingI hope this answers your question, feel free to contact me if you have any doubts and we can discuss it again.Regards,Dr.Suruchii
