Swollen Gums And Pain?
Hello doctor. I’m a woman in her 20s. It’s been 4 days (gum) the back of the back pain and swelling. Even though the pain was not as severe as the first day so could not open my mouth. My gums are also slightly (sagging) about my molars. What should I do? What disease do I have with my gums? thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swollen gums and pain can occur due to various things, including:
Gingivitis, inflammation of the gums due to lack of oral hygiene and plaque buildup
Mistake how to brush your teeth, or use a toothbrush with a brush that is too hard
The influence of hormones, especially for women in puberty, menstruation, pregnancy or when menopause
Drug side effects
Lack of vitamin C
Our advice, you should check your condition at the dentist so that you can see the condition directly and detected the problem. This is important to avoid misunderstandings in diagnosing and determining treatment because as you can see, there are many possible causes, which can also be beyond that when seen directly.
Meanwhile, what you can do is take over the counter pain and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed, brush your teeth with a soft brush, use mouthwash, consume healthy and nutritious food, increase your consumption of water, and avoid smoking . So, hopefully answering your question.
