gum problems

Hi,

Im hoping for some advice. In May I had a relapse and was prescibed a high dose of steroid for 6 days. I partially recovered but since have had swollen and receding gums, no bleeding and one of my front teeth has moved back slightly.

I have heard steroids can affect gums, I visited my dentist saying I was scared my tooth would fall out and he said it wouldnt.

Im very nervous about dentists…does anyone else know if this could be attributed to high steroid use 600mg mezdrapolene daily for 6 days?

Thankyou

I doubt it very much; 6 days is not a high dosage.
