The Exact Cause Of Swollen And Painful Gums?
Early morning, I want to .. My front tooth was damaged, and 2 years ago I went to the dentist to make teeth. The teeth look like the original only the upper gums right after the teeth are a little dark like there is a brown line. What I feel so far is sometimes a little sore, but I use toothpaste and mouthwash for sensitive teeth so that I don’t hurt anymore. Then this morning I felt and saw that the gums (inner area / ceiling) near my dentures were swollen, I didn’t know whether there was nana or not. It doesn’t hurt but I’m afraid of an infection or something. Please help, thank you 🙏
Hi Munazzila .. Thank you for the question given.
Swollen and painful gums can occur due to several things, for example:
Lack of vitamins, especially vitamin C
Buildup of dental plaque
Improper fitting of dentures
Viral or fungal infection
Disorders of the gums can indeed disturb sufferers, interfere with speaking, and are uncomfortable when eating, so if your complaints persist, the gums are swollen, reddish, suppurating, fever then it's a good idea to see a dentist. So that doctors can carry out dental and oral examinations directly so that the right treatment can be done. If necessary, the doctor can suggest tartar cleaning. Meanwhile what you can do is:
Keep your teeth and mouth clean, brush your teeth at least 2x a day, namely after eating and before going to bed
Get enough vitamins, especially vitamin C
Inadequate water needs
If there is fever and you feel pain, you can take paracetamol according to the dosage
If it is still swollen, you can compress the swollen part with a warm towel
