Pain in the gums or the inside of the mouth

Children and adolescents frequently complain about gum bleeding and pain, particularly during toothbrushing, caused by an inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). On some other occasions, the pain is experienced on the inside of the mouth and is caused by small sores, known as aphthous ulcers.

Bite tongue or lip

Numbness related to the use of a local aesthetic, after dental treatment is over, may cause the child to suck on or bite their lip, tongue or the inside of their cheek. This can often lead to a wound or severe swelling, accompanied by pain.

Bleeding following tooth extraction

Slight bleeding following a tooth extraction is normal. If it continues, it may be related to other general (e.g. problems with blood clotting) or local causes (e.g. the child may have irritated the wound with their hand or by sucking on it), especially when it is still numbed.
