Milwaukee area dentist Dr. Tony Cigno explains why gums might itch and how to know when it’s serious enough for a dental visit.
Greenfield, WI — January 3, 2018 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “Itchy Gums—When They’re Serious, When They’re Not, and What to Do in Either Situation.”
Sometimes, says Dr. Cigno, itchy gums can mean basically nothing at all, other than being annoying. On the other hand, he counters, there are times when itchy gums can be a sign of something more serious.
In general, potential benign and more significant causes of itchy gums Dr. Cigno elaborates, might be gum disease, hormones, allergies, food or drink sensitivities, medications, and more.
He goes on to say that just as with itchy teeth, the first step to addressing itchy gums is figuring out why they’re itchy. Dr. Cigno then shares how to do some process of elimination on your own as a first step, to help determine the root cause of your gum itch might be.
If that experimentation doesn’t result in a clear answer and solution, then this is the time to visit your dentist, says Dr. Cigno. If you’re looking for a Milwaukee dentist or Greenfield dentist, he adds, he and his team can be of great assistance in helping you find the cause.
