Dear Yanthi,

Swelling in the gum area indicates an inflammatory process in the gum area. This inflammation can occur for many reasons, but is usually dominated by an infectious process. Infection can occur through an available entrance, in this case a hole in the extracted tooth. This does not mean that tooth extraction will result in swollen gums, but the risk for infection increases, especially when oral hygiene is not paid attention to. In addition, a lack of vitamin C can also cause swollen gums.

Swollen gums can be applied with cold compresses to reduce pain, and swelling can also be helped to get rid of it by consuming fruits and vegetables. Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day, and clean the tartar at least every 6 months. However, if the condition of the swollen tooth is so bothersome, don't hesitate to see a doctor. Here we attach an article about swollen gums. Hope it is useful.
