Hello to the dentists, I'm a broke college student that has no money to visit the dentist.
There has been a steady problem on that tooth, and it has been slowly progressing to this point. The giant vain (or whatever it is) on the gum of that tooth used to hurt very bad to brush. Slowly it progress for about two years until the gum regress and you can see the yellow part revealing. That yellow part is very tender. I would not say it hurts when I push on it, but it does not feel very good. I can definitely tell there is some nerve under there.
What does all the dentists on here think it is? Will it get worse?
Also, my gum used to bleed whenever I brush, but now it doesn't anymore. However, it still bleeds when I floss.
Is there any type of gum regression on the bottom jaw at all? I try to take care of my teeth, brush after every meal, floss and listerine every night.
I also used to be a heavy bruxer until I started wearing a mouth guard to sleep. Do you think one day I can stop wearing it and the bruxism will stop? I have been wearing it for about 6 months now to sleep.
Can you tell if there are any significant wear on my teeth?
