I was reading your post and would like to ask a few more questions. I started having swollen,bleeding gums 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. The OB was not concerned, went several times to the dentist (I am very oral hygenic). They have never addresses it even though I have asked(all they do say is to floss daily). I have multiple food allergies, hypothyroidism, and sleep apnea. My gums bleed all the time, to the point I am always checking. They also stay swollen, but here is the funny part. It is only my top four and bottom four at the front of my mouth. I do have all of my wisdom teeth, and I do have mineral loss do to pregnancys. I do use mineral rinse. I am not over weight and eat healthy. I am seeking another dentists opinion and hope to receive some kind of help. What are your thoughts?View Thread
