Between my top two teeth, both crowns, I have a gum inflammation. The gum has gone beyond the gumline and is now between the teeth. It stings when my tongue touches the back of my upper mouth. There is, fortunately, no bleeding.

  • There are various causes for this inflammation in the front teeth. It can be due to trauma ie if you bite something hard and food causes the trauma to gums like popcorns getting struck in gums. It can also be due to infection in gums. For this try to maintain good oral hygiene with gentle brushing and flossing. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. You can also massage the gums with some gum paint available OTC. If it does not heal within 3-4 days then you have to visit your dentist who after clinical exam will do the treatment.
