The Gums Swell And Turn Black?
, I want to ask: I have swollen gum disease or my gums are blackish and reddish. How do I cure it? Because my swollen gums can’t eat
Hello Dedek, thank you for the question.
Swollen gums may indicate gingivitis or inflammation of the gums. Conditions such as dental caries (cavities), tartar, can also cause gingivitis. In gingivitis the gums will swell, redness, and pain. In some cases pus can come out of the swollen area. If not treated properly, the infection can spread to the tissues around the gums so that the cheeks and jaws also experience swelling. An abscess can occur which is a cavity where pus gather.
Poor gum inflammation can cause tooth root damage and tissue damage around the teeth (periodontitis). As a result, not infrequently the teeth become unsteady and die. In some very rare cases, an abscess in the gums can be fatal because of an infection that spreads toward the airway and chest cavity.
The best thing you can do is consult a dentist. The doctor will assess your condition and provide appropriate therapy. You can try taking an anti-pain medication labeled green. Please do not take antibiotics without doctor's advice because of the risk of side effects and the risk of causing bacteria to become antibiotic resistant. Maintain oral hygiene by brushing your teeth 2 times a day, use dental floss, and avoid smoking.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
