Itchy gums are often due to an allergic reaction but can also be an early indication of dental problems like gum disease. If symptoms persist it is best to see a dentist rather than ignore the problem but the itching gums can often be quickly treated by:
- Rinsing with saltwater
- Rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash
- Using an antihistamine
If none of the above cure the problem it could signal an underlying condition of the teeth and gums and “a dentist will be able to advise” you on the best course of action. More information about itchy gums can be found at https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319565.php.
