My front teeth

So for about a month now, I've been experiencing what feels like sensitive tooth pain across my front teeth, mainly the bottom ones, but occasionally along the top too. The pain isn't unbearable, doesn't require painkillers, but it's really annoying. My gums have been bleeding too. I've a dentist appointment next week, but wondering if anyone else has had a similar thing and how they dealt with it.

Bleeding is usually gum related, as in bacteria under the gum line. The sensitivity may be inflammation related to the bacteria. How long has it been since you've had a visit with the dental hygienist?

I would say that your gums might be receding a little bit, making teeth sensitive.Regular deep cleanings with the hygenist should sort it..

Do you smoke?

That's what I wondered. It's been a long time and I'm 36 so not as young as I was.

No, I don't smoke.
