Sore, swollen, and sensitive gums can come out of nowhere. And they can be a darn nuisance!
But did you know that sore gums signify that your body is working to heal itself? Your gums’ sensitivity is, in fact, your body’s first line of defense, bringing immune cells to fight the invading bacteria and prevent infection from spreading to the cells that support your teeth.
Sore, swollen, and sensitive gums indicate a bacterial infection in the gums.
Unless your gums are severely swollen, it can be easy to ignore sensitive gums, but the earlier you seek treatment, the better because this could be an early sign of gum disease.
Other possible causes of sensitive gums:
- Improper flossing techniques
- Brushing too hard
- Vitamin K deficiency
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause
- Tobacco use
- Bad diet
More often than not, however, sore and sensitive gums are most likely an indicator of one of the two stages of gum disease:
Gingivitis – inflammation of the gums and the first stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is commonly caused by a buildup of plaque or bacteria accumulating on the gum line. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, which is a much more serious form of gum disease.
Periodontitis is a complete destruction of some of the gum cells in the gum tissues that hold your teeth in place. If allowed to progress, this could lead to loss of teeth.
What can I do about my sore, sensitive gums?
Since many causes of sore gums link to oral hygiene, the tips below are the best place to start:
- Stop using toxic toothpaste and mouthwash so you can support your body’s natural ability to mend itself
- Brush at least twice a day with a natural tooth powder – Good-Gums all-natural powder is the best option because it’s much more than tooth cleaner. It actively supports the growth of healthy gum tissue, targeting areas of sensitivity and giving help right where it’s needed
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Floss every day
- Regular dentist checkups
- Regular dental cleanings (semi-annually)
- Eat a well-balanced, anti-inflammatory diet

Tell me more about Good-Gums tooth and gum formula
Good-Gums all-natural tooth and gum powder is designed to help your gums heal themselves naturally. If you’re like most of our customers, after using Good-Gums for just a couple weeks or less, you will notice a quick improvement with significantly less soreness and sensitivity.
Good-Gums takes advantage of the fact that your gum cells are comprised almost entirely of connective tissue and have some of the fastest replacement rates in your body.
If gum cells are given the nutrients and vitamins they need, healthier gum cells can start taking the place of less-healthy cells pretty quickly. Especially for connective tissue cells, what they need during formation is a large amount of vitamin C (especially via a formula that effectively buffers its acidity).
Good-Gums provides a massive amount of vitamin C, plus citrus bioflavonoids that help the body utilize vitamin C. Good-Gums is packed with so much vitamin C that with every use, it’s like eating a whole orange! And to protect your tooth enamel, the Good-Gums formula buffers vitamin C’s acidity with a large amount of alkaline baking soda
One of the best things about our Good-Gums formula is that it dissolves right in your mouth to be absorbed directly by the gums, giving help where it’s needed the most.
Let your own experience using Good-Gums remind you that you have something to fall back on if ever your gums become sore or sensitive in the future.
