This is a common question we get a lot and as it ends up, there are 2 primary reasons eating an apple can harm your gums:
- The apple peel on the exterior of the apple is pushing up versus your gums, causing pressure and pain.
- You may be allergic to apples (or a chemical sprayed onto the apple).
Let’s take on each one individually to see how to prevent gum pain when eating an apple. We’ll focus on the pain that originates from the apple peel pushing up against your gums because there is little that can be done if you dislike an apple.
How to Prevent Gum Pain from Eating an Apple
- Cut the apple up into small pieces– instead of biting straight into the apple, sufficed up first so that your gums do not need to press as difficult into the side of the apple into the peel.
- Think about mushing or blending the apple first– basically this gets rid of any solidity from the apple and is defacto making your own applesauce.
- Wash the apple with soap and water before consuming– you might dislike a chemical that has actually found it’s way onto the apple instead of the apple itself.
- Visit your local dental professional to evaluate your gums– it might be that you have delicate gums, Gingivitis, or some kind of periodontal disease that makes your gums swollen, sore, or delicate.
Situation: My bottom gums hurt very bad after I attempted consuming an apple. I think they even bled a little bit. I’ve always been informed I have puffy gums, and I try brushing them, however all these years (Im 20 now) and I still can’t eat an apple without pain! It really hurts for me to take a bite into an apple, it’s just too tough. I mean I can co through with it, but it just hurts excessive to surpass the fulfillment of the taste … What is there to do about this?
Solution: Cut that apple up first into pieces, seems like you’re attempting to eat it whole which causes the apple to press versus your gums. Cut that motha.
