Causes Swollen Gums Until The Cheeks Are Prolonged?
Hello, I want to ask, I have had a gum abscess for a long time, initially my teeth were perforated and patched, after a few months later there was swelling of the gums that continues until now and my cheeks swell. The taste is very appealing, is there any medicine to relieve this swelling? And what will the doctor do later if this happens? I was very scared to check. Please answer yes, thank you …

Gum abscess is the formation of gums and pus accumulation due to inflammation and infection of the gums and teeth. This condition often causes disturbing complaints of pain, bleeding, appetite disorders, headaches, to fever. If the gum abscess is not treated properly, it can cause swelling to the surrounding tissue, so that the salivary glands can swell and can be at risk of causing infection in the bones around the teeth.
Some triggers for gum abscess are:
1. Perforated teeth
2, tooth root infection
3. Dental infections
4. Complications of dental fillings
5. tooth decay
6. the rest of the food on the teeth and gums
In connection with your question, the swelling of your gums and cheeks shows that the inflammation and infection process has been running for days without proper treatment. The maintenance and prevention of dental abscesses that you do may also be less than optimal, so that complications and expansion of swelling occur. Without a visit to the dentist, I cannot give recommendations for appropriate and appropriate treatment, because complaints and conditions must be examined directly by the doctor so the doctor can ascertain the cause and provide the right treatment for you.
If you consult with your doctor as early as possible, then complaints of pain and swelling can be immediately controlled and handled properly. The doctor will see directly and conduct an evaluation with the support of a radiological examination. The results of the examination will be a reference for handling this complaint, whether in the form of treatment, treatment of tooth roots to dental fillings (if the complaint is related to the area of old dental fillings).
For now, pay attention to the type of food you consume ie avoiding excessive sweet food, or instant drinks; don't forget to keep your oral cavity clean.
