Well, am undergoing braces..the gum became swollen ,so my doctor recommended a gum paint(ASTRIGUM) and whose ingredients are-- WWW.WWWW.WW I mean it has tannic acid that lowers the pH of the mouth and hence would deminerlization of tooth occur ( acid erosion of enamel) because some of the content gets on the surface of the teeth?? WWW.WWWW.WW (Tells about acid erosion of enamel) Actually, one of my tooth already suffers demineralization.(before gum paint) Can u suggest how to apply(massage or just apply it)?One has to wait 15 min before rinsing with water and another 15min for eating? What are the other methods to fully eliminate the swollen gum forever other than warm salt water rinse??

6 months ago I went to my dentist for my checkup. They noticed that the gums behind my front two teeth and bottom two teeth were disconnecting from my teeth, so after doing a deep cleaning (I think) they prescribed me this medical mouthwash. Now six months later the gums behind my two front teeth are still swollen and the gums behind my bottom two teeth are still disconnecting and this is a problem when I floss. I ve been flossing and brushing my teeth twice a day after my appointment, I don t know why its not healing. I also wear braces. I ve had them for 11 months now.

about a year ago, the inside of my lips peeled. now the outside of my lips are always dry. its almost like their dead. the inside layer that peeled has never grown back it seems. and they're a bit darker in color compared to the outside which is almost a whiteish. I also have a little red bump on the outside of my upper lip. and to me it stands out quite a bit on my whiteish lips. my doctor said it could be a bulging blood vessle? I think about it everyday and its really annoying... it makes me sad looking up close in the mirror. also i just noticed my bottom front gum has lots of little red veins and is darker in color compared to my top gums... they dont hurt. but thats not really an issue to me compared to the little red bump on my whiteish outer upper lip. Im thinking i have some kind of disease or something. I dont even want to kiss a girl anymore.. its depressing.... Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

My name is Charles Walters; Male; 48. i've recently been suffering from bloating, fullness, discomfort and sometimes pain in my abdomen. This has been accompanied by bleeding gums, frequent fatigue, and sometimes nausea. I have frequent bowel movements (3-5), which are urgent shortly after waking. They are usually within minutes of each other. the first is always solid and normal sized, but the subsequent ones are loose and thin. I've lost no wieght. I find that I am winded easier than usual. I eat a high fiber, veggie-rich diet, and not much red meat. My blood work was normal. I have been priorly diagnosed with periodontal disease. I've already had a ct-scan of my abdomen to rule out pancreatic cancer. The report showed a "possible medial arcuate ligament syndrome." My MD went with this diagnosis, despite admittedly knowing nothing about it and having never heard of it. He did not recommend a colonoscopy. Upon research, I found that my symptoms, other than abdominal pain, do not match those of medial arcuate ligament syndrome. What do you say about this? BTW: My MD firts referred me to am ortho for a knee related problem, having read the ct-scan report wrong. Am i in good hands?

Age 29/m. height is 5.6' and weight is 72kilos. Its been 3 months since I've noticed blood while I'm spitting in the morning even before having a wash. It smells very routine and everytime I spit, it is with a froth. I think I am losing weight too. I've consulted a doctor and I do not get good answers from them. I went for a chest scan, blood test and it is normal. The sputum has few samples of pus in it. What may be the reason behind me spitting blood in the morning? I have even noticed that my gums are not looking the same, meaning I may be having ulcer like situation and I seen once or twice blood from the tooth /gums.
