I have periodontal disease and I use many products to try and control and I am a smoker. I also have that bone thing...cannot remember the name, but basically my bones grow outward where they pertrude. I brush/floss/use gum brush about 4 times a day (morning when I get up, after I eat breakfast, after lunch and b4 bed). For the past week, my upper gums feel rough and a little stingy, especially near the teeth. I try and use natural/organic items, including Dr Tungs gum brush w/ the gum tonic. My gums never really have bleed much and the tissues, I have been told, are tight and in good shape but I have a pocket of 7, a couple of 5's, a few 4, a few 3 and the remaining 2's. Any suggestion as to what it may be and what to do for the rough stinging and what more I can do for the perio? Thank you so much.
