Dentist 's  Response

I can understand your concern. As far as gums and saliva are concerned, it seems that you are suffering from Pyorrhea or Periodontitis.

When plaque, calculus and debris accumulate where the teeth and gums meet, they develop inflammation of the gums and surrounding tissues causing symptoms like bleeding gums, sour taste, thick pasty saliva, mobile teeth etc.

I would advise you to visit a dentist for clinical examination and ultrasonic scaling which will mechanically remove the unwanted substances like tartar, plaque etc. from the gums and will improve the health of gums.

I would also advise you to brush twice daily, use mouthwash and floss every night for better health of gums and improvement in Pyorrhea.

I hope this information helps you. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic. I wish you feel better soon.
