Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Swallowing disorders or also called dysphagia can be caused by several possibilities, including:
disorders of the mouth and throat, for example there are cavities, interference with dental fillings or dentures, inflammation or infection of the gums, fungus in the mouth, tumors or cancer of the mouth and throat, etc.
disorders of the esophagus, for example GERD, esophageal cancer, achalasia, esophagitis, etc.
neurological disorders, such as stroke, parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, etc.
other causes, such as scleroderma, muscle weakness due to aging, etc.
If indeed the swallowing disorder is very disturbing especially you are accompanied by respiratory problems, you should check yourself to the ENT doctor. Additional examinations should be done to determine the exact cause, for example endoscopy, examination with barium swallow, examination of the esophageal muscle (manometry), and CT scan if deemed necessary.
If you experience certain disorders in your oral cavity (for example you have cavities, swollen gums, or other problems) also check yourself with the dentist for further management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
