Hello Rindiantika, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Swollen gums are a symptom of gingivitis or an infection of the gums, and the most severe condition of swollen gums is periodontitis. Periodontitis is a gum infection that damages soft tissue and destroys your teeth. Swollen gums can be caused by:
Tooth infection with holes Tartar Irritation for example due to friction between teeth Leftover food When swallowing hurts, the possible causes are:
Sore throat Inflammation of the tonsils Laryngitis or laryngeal infection Stomach acid disorder or GERD, stomach acid that rises to the top so that the throat feels sore Tonsils or tonsillitis that must be operated on are tonsils that have interfered with the way to eat and the airway, and are often infected, which often results in fever. However, in the case of your tonsils, you should consult with an ENT specialist, so that a physical examination will be carried out on you, whether your tonsils have reached the stage of having to operate or not, or only need medication.
Some suggestions for you to avoid frequent sore throats or tonsillitis:
Drink lots of water Avoid oily and sweet foods Avoid cold drinks or sugary drinks Keep your mouth and teeth clean, brush your teeth diligently Avoid using a rough toothbrush avoid drinks that irritate the gums and throat such as alcohol or caffeine Eat nutritious foods balanced, multiply vegetables and fruits. Diligently check with the dentist, at least once every 6 months. Thank you, hopefully it will be useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
