My bottom gums hurt like hell after I tried eating an apple. I think they even bled a little bit. I've always been told I have puffy gums, and I try brushing them, but all these years (Im 20 now) and I still can't eat an apple without pain!!!

What is there to do about this?

It really hurts for me to take a bite into an apple, it's just too hard. I mean I can co through with it, but it just hurts too much to outweigh the satisfaction of the taste...

When my gums hurt after eating an apple, it means they are slightly infected with a buildup of bacteria and other fabulous things, and I need to start flossing and using mouthwash more regularly.

I recommend flossing and then rinsing with mouthwash (to get rid of the blood that will likely occur after flossing in your condition) and then brushing your teeth. I'd repeat this every day for at least a week. your gums will feel better at the end of the week. .. would be best to keep flossing on a daily basis, but many dentists are now saying that you shouldn't use mouthwash regularly, as it screws up the balance of good bugs in your mouth. (yes, you do need some bacteria)

As to exactly why your gums hurt when you eat the apple... the teeth sink into the skin of the apple, and go as deep as they can, up to the gums, where they are stopped. Like stabbing something up to the hilt of a knife, you know? But since your gums are soft and puffy, they press hard against the crisp apple skin, which irritates the gums.

Make sure to spend 3 minutes on brushing your teeth (3 times a day) paying attention to your gums, floss, and use ACT or Listerine mouthwash daily. I have very sensitive gums also and it hurts me to drink cold water sometimes. But ever since I've been doing what I told you to do, they haven't been bothering me like before. Start cutting your apple into thin slices until your gums aren't so sensitive.

Do not be afraid it's because you have very soff gum,you need to get used of it,you will see later how are going to be very strong,people it's suffering of this problems now because of the fast food.

This question is relevant to my interests. I too have this problem.

I solved a similar problem by flossing my regularly, this is sensitivity due to gingivitis.

Cut that apple up first into slices, sounds like you're trying to eat it whole which causes the apple to press against your gums. Cut that motha.
