I just got back from my dentist, I need two root canals and two crowns. I have dental insurance but its still going to cost me $1850.00. 2 teeth that much? I know I am lucky to have insurance but ...
Why are my gums turning white?
Whn I apply a slight amount of pressure to my bottom front gums, I notice that the area around it quickly turns to a clear, whitish color, then returns to its normal color when I deapply pressure...Is this normal?
either your getting older or brushing to vigorusly, brush softer
low blood pressure???
must be cos it happens to me all the time lol
Immediate return is normal; gums are very vascular; if they remain white for more than a few seconds, or are blanched, faded, light, it indicates poor circulation of blood to the area; gum disease/tooth loss/gum recession likely. See dentist; deep cleaning may be recommended et al.
perfectly normal- relax : )
Why are you playing with your gums?.....Get a job!
Yes, this is very normal. You are putting pressure on your gums and the blood is being pushed away. A bad sign that you have an issue with your gums, is swollen or bleeding. flosse and brush at least two times a day.
Mr fix it
yes!! when you push on it you are pushing all the blood out of that area and the when you release it the blood rushes back in.
Yes, that's normal.
Pressing on soft tissue causes the blanching because pressure prevents blood from flowing to the area.
