It’s been a few months that the pink color above the teeth or gums hurts when rubbed or held, why?

1 Answer:

Hi Cristin,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The pink area above the teeth is actually still part of the gum. Pain in the gums is most often indicative of inflammation (gingivitis). Not only pain, inflammation of the gums can also cause the gums to swell, bleed easily, give off an unpleasant odor, and erode. There are many causes for this condition, including:

Poor oral hygiene
Dry mouth
The habit of smoking or chewing tobacco
Poor nutrition (especially lack of vitamin C)
Immune disorders, for example due to HIV, leukemia, or side effects of chemotherapy
Drug side effects, for example anti-epileptic drugs calcium channel blockers
Hormonal fluctuations (if you are a woman, for example while pregnant or using birth control pills)
Other diseases, such as viral or fungal infections

Not only gingivitis, pain in the gums that you experience may also be caused by dental abscesses, rhinosinusitis, jaw joint disorders, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, somatoform disorders, injuries, and so on.


Management of this pain can be done differently depending on the cause. In the meantime, you can overcome the pain first by taking paracetamol, brush your teeth more diligently, gargle with salt solution, while limiting the consumption of foods and drinks that are too hard, sticky, too hot, too cold. However, if the pain has not subsided after this treatment, you should check yourself directly to the nearest doctor or dentist so that appropriate treatment is given, okay?


I hope this helps.
