Red Gum Line??

By Jill 2/15/2010 8:20:46 PM
My gum line is red but the rest of my gums are pinkish so why is my gum line red??? Is that normal?? Why or Why not?? I have been brushing & useing mouth wash Is it because I chew Red Trident Sugar Free Gum all the time?? Should I Stop Chewing Red Gum for a week & see if the redness goes away?? It doesn't hurt & isn't irrated & it doesn't get reder & doesn't bleed. Please Reply Soon

Normaly when the gum line is red it is the indication that you have gingivits. but in that you have bleeding and irritation. As you do not have these signs then may be it is due to the red gum you chew. You can stop it for a week and see if the redness goes then it is because of that or you have to go to the dentist as some times in the initial stages of gingivitis there is no pain or irritation. Keep doing warm saline rinses along with brushing and flossing. for more info on gum diseases you can visit the following link.......http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
