Pokes Gums With A Sharp Pointy Instrument

Many people indeed feel some pain when their gums are being probed.  But don't blame your dentist!  

your gums are bleeding because you don't flossThe fact of the matter is, you gums should not feel pain when they are probed for periodontal pocket depths.  You actually, really should not feel it.  

If you feel like your gums are being stabbed by a pointy needle, it may be a sign that your gums are diseased.   You can ask your dentist for verification.

Gum disease is like that.  You may not have bleeding gums or you may - that is a classic sign of gum disease.  But you can still have gum disease even if your gums don't bleed.

This sharp stabbing feeling is likely a result of diseased tissue.   When your gums are healthy, normal probing should not elicit pain.

What Can You Do About This? 

The first thing to do is ask your dentist what your periodontal pocket depths are.   Generally speaking, they should be 3mm or less. 

 If they are above that, generally speaking again, most dentists will say that your gums are not healthy (diseased).

Therefore, your goal should be to get them to 3mm and below, everywhere in your mouth!

What Can You Do To End This? 

There may not be one thing that works 100% of the time for 100% of the people, so you will always want your dentist to check those pocket depths on every regular checkup and cleaning.

But there is something that has worked for a lot of people.  That is the Hydro Floss.

It worked for me personally.  And it has worked for others as well. 

Try it out.  Use it every day.  Use it twice per day.  Use 2 full reservoirs per use.  

If you do the math, that is 4 reservoirs per day.

Let your dentist or hygienist check next time you visit them.  Perhaps your pockets will shrink.

When the gums are healthier, perhaps the probing will no longer bother you and no longer feel like someone is sticking a pin into your gums!

Score one for the good guys!
