Dental and Oral Health (Seniors)

Aching Gums



My mother is expericing aching gums. Althought she has no teeth, it feels like a toothache. Also lately at night she has a burning sensation across her chest, which she thinks its indigestion. Could there be a connection?


Yes, these problems could be related. I will suggest to check with her physician.
