|Feeling pain in your gums may have you grabbing the phone to call our dental offices for an appointment as soon as possible.
Before doing that, you may want to think about whether there is a reason for the gum pain that you can find a remedy for in your own home. You may end the pain by doing something simple or you may do something that will help you until you are able to see a dentist.
Things that Cause Gum Pain
There are many things that can cause gum pain. Cavities, tooth decay and infections are a few of them. These are the types of problems that a dental professional should help with. There are other causes that you can probably deal with on your own.
It is important to know when you have gum pain that you can treat at home and when you need to check with a dental professional. If the gum pain is intense and persistent or if interferes with eating and sleeping or if there are other symptoms, it is best to call our offices for help.
Contact our dental professionals today to find out more information concerning your oral health.
