Dental cleaning, split in gums on that side, unable to eat anything, burning sensation. Treatment?

I had an Right Upper Quadrant dental cleaningon 21 Aug 12 by my hygenist. A few days later, I had noticed that my gums felt split in the roof of my mouth on that side as well as where I open my mouth on the right side and I feel it. It hurts and is not enabling me to eat anything on that side and/or certain foods burn at those sites. HELP!!!

Hi..
Thanks for the query.
Problems like pain in gums ,sensitivity to cold ,inability to eat,fragility of gums occurs during the in-between appointments of scaling.
Have patience and get your complete scaling and polishing done.
Do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day for 4-5 days and maintain good oral hygiene.
Take CLAXIN tablet and maintain good oral hygiene.
Take Care.

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Split on gums after dental cleaning has undergone can be due to-

Removal of calculus as well as plaque deposited in between your teeth.

Surgical recontouring or repositioning of flap has to be done if necessary.

Use soft interdental toothbrush as well as chlorhexidine mouthrinses to gargle.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Take vitamin c as well as folic acid supplements.

Hope this helps.

please don't be worried about anything because healing of oral mucosa is much fast as compared to our skin... just apply local anesthetic gel over the area...
avoid hot and spicy foods...
take B complex also... it will also make the healing process fast...

question arises as to why you visited the dentist in the first place. it appears you were having poor oral hygiene.yours could be a case of gingival recession wherein the gums loose their firm adhesion to the teeth,i advise you to visit a periodontist who will try to arrive at the reasons for this condition. meanwhile you may apply a topical anaesthetic gel such as mucopain and a desnsitising paste such as colgate sensitive pro relief.
thanks

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain, sensitivity in the gums usually occurs during and after dental scaling and polishing.
Gap in the gums are due the removal of the plague and calculus in between the teeth.
Apply some local antiseptic analgesic cream topically over the affected area.
Take antiseptic mouthwash rinses twice daily.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.
Take complete balanced diet and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.

Hope this helps out.

Regards....
