I developed some kind of gum problem with a couple of my teeth that had braces on the back. because the braces were way to close to floss and clean. when I went to get the back braces removed the dentist kinda pulled them out and there was a lot of blood. its been a month and my Gums havent really improved and my teeth feel really weak and I cant bite with them because it would hurt. I floss every day even though it hurts and use mouthwash with no alcohol in it and I recently used this medicine called Anbesol instant pain relief without directed by dentist. I only used it once because it was too strong. Should I continue using it. and what should I do about my gums, and what do u recomend like products or treatments. Will my teeth fall out?

  • After getting the braces removed you should have gone for cleaning and scaling from dentist so that if any deposites were there, are removed and after this brush you teeth daily twice a day along with flossing and you should use warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. If this all is not helping in subsiding the swelling of gums and your gums are hurting and bleeding is there then may be some infection is there in gums and for this you have to visit dentist, who will recommend some antibiotics to you. You should not use any product without dentist's precription.
