Some people have generally sensitive layer kf the mouth. In such cases apple pineapple or oranges tend to create roughness which pains. Avoid taking these fruits for sometime and evaluate yourself for the possibility of any vitamin deficiency. Many vitamin b/c deficiencies create sensitive inner lining of the body.

Hi. Little changes do occur in the mouth with age. No need to worry about that. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Rinse your mouth properly after eating anything. Brush twice daily especially at night time before going to bed. Visit a dentist every 6-12 months for a scaling/ Cleaning of your tooth. Do not floss much. Gaps might have occurred due to gum recession. Do warm saline rinses this will make your gums strong and healthy.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.
