What causes inflammation of gums after using strong teeth whitening strip?
I received a free sample of a strong teeth whitening strip. I used it two days ago and the next morning i noticed that my gums were burned. Multiple layers of my gums were pealing and bleeding. When will this go away and when will they be healed? (it looks like i have something stuck in my teeth because my gums are swollen)
Hello and welcome. Thanks for sharing your concern.
Please note that the strips could contain abrasive material,which can further damage your teeth and gums. Please discontinue it immediately.The damage caused will definitely take sometime to heal.It would be nice if you can see your dentist and get an x ray done. Hope it helps. Thanks. Take care.
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query. The inflammation of the gums after using teeth whitening strip could be a chemical burn or allergic stomatitis leading to desquamative gingivitis. Consult a oral physician and get it ruled out. You can take topical anesthetic and analgesics like anabel gel. apply 3-4 times daily before food. I hope my answer will help you, take care.
