The Gums Are Swollen, Painful, And Appear Redder Even After Taking Medicine?
Hi Him888 .. Thank you for the question.
Swollen gums, painful, appear redder than usual can be caused by:
Periodontitis - gum infections that damage the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth
Inflammation of the gums / ginggivitis
Sprue in the gums
Vitamin C deficiency
Treatment for swollen gums requires time if your dentist has given antibiotics so you should consume the drug in accordance with the dose and until it runs out. Antibiotics are useful for fighting infections caused by bacteria. If after the drug runs out or before the drug runs out swelling increases, pain, there is enlargement in the cheeks so you should go back to the dentist. If there is enlargement in the cheek / neck area, it is feared submandibular abscess / accumulation of pus in the lower jaw.
All you can do is:
Keep the oral cavity clean
Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and avoid brushing your teeth too hard
To reduce pain you can take paracetamol according to the dosage and compress your cheeks with a warm towel
Take enough vitamin C
