Swollen Gums Don’t Hurt?
Excuse me, I want to ask, my gums are swollen, but there is no pain at all, that’s a sign of “what?” Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Swollen gums, although not accompanied by pain, you should still be aware of. Frequently, this condition occurs due to inflamed gums, for example due to allergies or irritation when in contact with toothpaste and certain mouthwashes, tartar which accumulates, cavities, tooth abscesses, to infections in the oral cavity. Other factors, such as hormonal fluctuations, lack of nutrition, side effects of drugs, malignancy, impaired immunity, and so on can also cause swollen gums. By going directly to the doctor, of course the doctor can evaluate the possibility of dangerous conditions, so that treatment can be done early. If necessary, the doctor can direct you to undergo further tests (such as x-rays, blood tests), or refer you to the right doctor (for example dentist, ENT doctor, internist).
In the meantime, what can be done is:
Do not over-pressure the swollen gums
Diligently brush your teeth, also clean between your teeth and tongue, then continue to rinse with a warm salt solution afterwards
Limit the habit of eating hard and sticky foods first
Expand to eat fruits rich in vitamin C, iron, and other nutritional variants
Do not smoke
Stay away from alcohol too
Don't take medicine carelessly
Take regular breaks and also exercise in your daily life
Hope this helps ...
