Hi Heri Kurnia,


Swelling of the gums is generally caused by an infection in the teeth, causing the infection to spread to its surroundings, including the gums. Infection of the gums can also spread to other tissues around the mouth, for example causing sore throat.


However, swelling of the gums can also be caused by other factors such as:

Plaque / tartar buildup

Gingivitis / gum inflammation

Fungal or viral infection
Vitamin C deficiency
Sensitive gums


Meanwhile, sore throat apart from strep throat, can also be caused by inflammation of the tonsils, esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus / channel that connects the mouth to the stomach), stomach acid disease, or the presence of a foreign object.


In the meantime, to deal with pain that arises as an initial treatment at home you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol. Gargling with warm water with a pinch of salt 2-3 times a day can help relieve pain and inflammation. Try to increase your consumption of water and limit your consumption of foods that are fried, oily, spicy, or too hot / cold. Furthermore, you should see a dentist so that they can be further examined in order to investigate the cause, so that the right treatment can be given to you in accordance with the basic condition.
