It is more common to detect the causes of a headache more than a paining gum. For most people, they treat headaches by drinking water, eating food, or by sleeping for a few hours. For people with aching gums, it is usually difficult to notice and identify the root cause of the problem. Aching gums and headaches have similar reasons but different causes of the problems. Some of these causes are discussed here.
Did I Physically Bring Harm to Myself?
At times someone may be in a rush to leave his/her house, and make the person brush his/her teeth in a hurry hurting their gums. This leads to gums aching for the better of the morning. In a similar way, the person might have used to much force when brushing teeth, causing friction. This results in gums aching continuously. It is advised to check on dental products used and foods consumed to know whether they lead to your gums aching. Hot drinks and foods have a tendency to cause aching gums.
Is My Body Aware That I Am Sick?
A good way of knowing you have a problem is if you experience pain. Aching of gums can be due to growth related hormonal imbalance during puberty, menstruation, menopause, and pregnancy. Gums receive blood at high pressure. This makes them swell which results to aching. Mouth ulcers, oral cancer, gum disease, loose tooth, and dentures that don’t fit perfectly can also cause gums to ache. Dentists recommend to patients to avoid chewing and smoking tobacco to prevent gum aches. All these causes whether one or more can lead to gums aching.
