hi Over the past few weeks my gums have started bleeding when I brush them. They feel like theyre reseeding also. But these last few days they have been throbbing constantly, sometimes its unbearble and all I have to do is eat or push on my gum with my tongue and it starts to bleed. Cleaning them awful, blood from every area and my teeth feel loose. What`s wrong? I clean them gently three times a day with a soft brush.
You have necrotizing periodontitis. You need to see a periodontist ASAP if you did not see one yet.
