I have a dentist appointment today for a cleaning. So I'll see if the increased, although by no means regular brushing has made a difference.

flossed and brushed yesterday and will again today before my appointment.

I had mine, too. The dentist said that one time bleeding (and not a lot of it, and only on the bottom of the mouth) was probably due to accidentally injuring the gum. Since it has not repeated, she is not worried. She found my mouth in good order, but then...

... when she was doing her exam, there was a popping sound and a crown came off one of my farthest bottom teeth. The crown is porcelain fused to metal which means it is old as now they do not make such crowns. She looked it up in my history: the crown dates back to 2012. She suggested we update it to a modern Zirconia crown. I agreed. To do that, since the nerve is very close, I will first need to do a root canal. She referred me out for that since her office is undergoing renovations now and she does not have equipment to do a root canal. I will make an appointment at that other office with her colleague tomorrow. After the root canal is done, I will go back to her for a new crown.

For now she cemented the old crown temporarily and told me to floss carefully, with the movement "through" but not "up".

Most of my insurance allotment will probably be spent on this: root canal and a new crown. I already paid today for that temporary cementing, and also for fluoride coating. The cleaning itself is covered 100% as preventative.

I feel lucky that I have insurance to cover this sudden emergency.

Splitimage, how was your visit?

@Tart Cherry Jam, sorry you need a root canal and new crown, but I guess if you're going to lose a crown at the dentist is a good place for it to happen.

My cleaning went super well, just had some plaque build up in hard to reach spots in my mouth, but overall the cleaning was fast and painless, and no cavities. The dentist said to keep using the antibacterial mouthwash until the itching I have in one spot clears up completely. And they really encouraged me to try to increase the frequency of brushing.
