    I noticed small spots of blood on my gums yesterday and every few days they feel really sensitive when brushing, I think i read something a little while ago thats its due to lack of chewing on the diet, am just so scared my teeth fall out or summit! I also feel that my chums seem to be receeding if thats possible? Will they repair themsels when am back to healthy eating? I was still wanting another month and half on the diet but scared it gets worse!

    im sure as long as you brush really well, including your gums and tongue and use mouthwash , that should help. if your worried about the chewing thing, eat a flapjack ...i used to hate them llike a lot on here but now i actually enjoy them, mostly because im eating something and not glugging :)

    Im your girl hun!! Firstly if your gums are receding slightly, they will not grow back but will stabilize. You need to make sure you brush around in circles to avoid making them recede further. Your gums will bleed when there is plaque left on them, like i said last time chewing helps produce saliva which will wash some of it away! You basically need to brush thouroughly and floss also to get rid of all the plaque. No plaque, then no bleeding hun.

    Do i sound proffessional lol?? xxxx

    When you leave some plaque behind the gums swell up as a way of trying to protect themselves, The blood rushes to this area hence why they bleed when brushed. The gums can appear receded when they are swollen as they are puffy and odd looking if you get what i mean. It could be that when you give them a good brush for a few days they will bleed a lot but dont let the bleeding put you off, go back and brush it again. When they heal they may not have receded.

    Or on the other hand like i said they may have receded due to brushing technique, try circular motions and maybe an electric toothbrush!

    Hope this helps guys xxx
