    Hi all, am on LT 3 weeks now and in the last few days I have noticed that my gums are really sore and bleed a lot when I brush my teeth:eek:. I said it to the pharmacist today at WI and she said that no-one else has had that problem. Has anyone else had this problem, I love my teeth and don't want to cause any damage, any advice appreciated guys!!!xxxx

    Here goes hun! Basically your gums bleed when there is plaque on them as a way of protecting themselves, therefore no plaque at all means no bleeding! When on LT we have less saliva due to no chewing, the saliva helps to wash our mouths and remove plaque! So on LT we may have more plaque deposits than before. When they bleed hun go back and brush the same places that bled, even though that sounds weird, try flossing also to remove it all xxxxx

    Thanks Tracy, I forgot you were a dental nurse, will take your advice and be extra vigilant about flossing and brushing. I suppose I am just worried I am causing damage being on this diet?? Not enough vitamins or something? I have my 6 month check up soon, hopefully dentist won't give out to me for doing this.
