Hello. I want to ask. At first my cavities, on the night of May 8, it hurt a lot, and was a little swollen on my cheeks. On the 11th I just went to the doctor. The doctor said that because of cavities and small teeth and dental plaque that caused pain. Dr. dkter was only given antibiotics and pain relievers. At night my gums actually swelled. and the pus came out. But on the 13th, it was still swollen and festering. I went back to the doctor yesterday, but he said why the doctor returned, the medicine wasn’t finished yet. I asked the festering gums, he said because he wanted to heal so the gums were swollen and festering and I was told to go home Is the swollen gums festering a sign of wanting to heal not due to infection,? Until the 14th of my gums were still swollen but not festering Thank you

Hello Aprilia.

Swollen and suppurating teeth can be caused by various causes. From your situation, if you have cavities it can be one of the causes of swollen gums. Cavities can cause food residue to be left behind, and can also be a source of infection if not treated for a long time.

If your gums are swollen and festering, then a bacterial infection has occurred. Your doctor gives you antibiotics and that is right enough. If your doctor has only given antibiotics for 2 days, then at that time it is still in the treatment period and antibiotics are still at work. So that the effects of antibiotics can only be seen after the antibiotics run out. So if it's only been 2 days, then the effect of the treatment is still ongoing. So it is recommended that you re-check your doctor after the antibiotics run out.

From your situation, if the gums don't fester, it can be a sign of healing. Maybe your doctor will need to clean up the abscess / pus (if indeed the doctor feels the need). Perform regular gargling by using antiseptic fluid 1-2 times a day.
