jaw bone coming through gums

Hi,

I have tried to find out what is happening to my gum, my jaw is coming through in both sides of the bootom jaw.  It seems from some info I have seen caused by the Menopause or, through certain treatments for cancer.  I am 56 year old woman, but have had no treatment for cancer.  My dentist for 8 weeks just dismissed my concerns, and last week seemed very concerned suddenly, and l am now awaiting an appointment with a Dental Surgeon.  I have had confirmation that they are informed but, an appointment could be weeks, even months away here, with the N.H.S.

 From the little info I have seen it seems there is not a lot that can be done.  It is so painful, and l am becoming quite depressed from it all.  So, if anyone out there has any further information regarding these awful symptoms, please, do not hesitate to contact me.  In the meantime I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Many thanks.

 

Val

Hi Val.  I have also had that issue.  The thing that works for me is mixing a squeeze bottle withh water, salt, and baking soda amd gargling 4 or 5 times a day.  if that doesnt seem to start helping in a day or two, ask you doc for some "magic mouthwash" 

good luck

Hi Josh,

Thankyou very much for your reply. Tonight a piece of bone has come out, l did manipulate it slighty, but what a relief it was the sharpest piece, on my tounge constantly for past 8 weeks, l feel a million dollars.  Although still have 4 more l can put up with the pain from them.  I shall use your advice, and hope the remainder come out like the last one.

Thanks again,

 

Kind regards,

 

Val
