What Does It Mean When My Gums Hurt When I Brush My Teeth

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Joseph Kabaklian DDS
What Does It Mean When My Gums Hurt When I Brush My TeethIf you notice that your gums are hemorrhaging, swollen, or uncomfortable and sore when you brush your teeth, you ought to address the issue before it begins to affect your teeth and gums. Brushing your teeth and gums might help determine why you're experiencing pain in certain areas.

It is possible to irritate and create inflammation of the gums by brushing your teeth too aggressively or by using a toothbrush with bristles that are too stiff. It is advised that you brush gently, move in circular motions rather than back-and-forth motions, and use soft bristles made of nylon. Also, use the brush in small circular motions.

Your Diet Can Also Cause Painful Gums

Consuming or drinking certain acidic foods and beverages, such as grapefruit, orange, lime or lemon, juice can cause your mouth to become sensitive or irritated. In some cases, these liquids can even lead to aphthous ulcers, which can make brushing your teeth a painful experience.
