Hello Lilys,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Swelling and pain in the gums does not always occur because of cavities. It could also, swelling and pain in your gums caused by inflammation (gingivitis) which is triggered by other factors, such as smoking, dry mouth (xerostomia), tooth abscess (infection of the teeth), lack of nutrition (especially lack of vitamin C), hormonal fluctuations (in women, for example when pregnant or using hormonal birth control), side effects of drugs (for example anti-epileptic drugs, anti-angina drugs), immune disorders (such as HIV or leukemia), irritation (such as due to the use of toothpaste or certain mouthwash), to certain viral or fungal infections in the oral cavity.


Your condition should not be worried too much. You can resolve your complaint with the following steps:

Be more diligent in brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, but don't brush your teeth too hard, also choose a soft bristle toothbrush
Gargling with salt solution after brushing your teeth
Not always eating food that is too hard, sticky, too hot
Expand eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C, such as mushrooms, oranges, strawberries
Do not smoke
Stay away from alcohol and drugs
Take paracetamol for pain to subside
Do not carelessly take other medicines without a doctor's prescription

If the steps above have not been successful in alleviating complaints in your gums, you can check yourself directly to the nearest dentist to be given the right treatment. Further examination, such as a laboratory or X-ray, can also be done by a doctor if deemed necessary.


Hope this helps ...
