Doctor, I have inflammation of my lower left back gum. I checked into the health center and was given an amox medication with methylprednisolone. But the taste has no effect and I still feel the pain and the inflammation hasn’t subsided. Are there any additional medicines so my gums won’t swell anymore or do it take several days to feel the effects of the medication? Please answer thanks.

Hello Aulia,


Thank you for the question.

Inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) can indeed make the gums feel painful and swollen. This inflammation of the gums has many possible triggers, ranging from cavities, tartar, hormonal fluctuations, drug effects, immune disorders, infections in the oral cavity or in other organ systems, allergies or irritations, malnutrition, bleeding disorders, benign or malignant tumors, and etc. How long the healing time needed to overcome inflammation of the gums can certainly vary, depending on the severity and underlying cause.


The steps you took before were right, namely by checking yourself directly to the doctor to be given the right treatment. Often, after taking 1-3 days to take medication, your condition has begun to be observed improvement. However, besides undergoing doctor's treatment, you also need to do the following tips:

Routinely brush your teeth after every meal and before going to bed with fluoride toothpaste
Also clean between your teeth and tongue, then rinse with salt solution afterwards
Do not yet consume foods that are too hot, too oily, hard, and sticky
Make sure you rest and drink a lot every day
Do not smoke or consume any drugs without doctor's advice
Don't stress too much and be disciplined in living a healthy lifestyle

Mild conditions will often improve without the need for special handling. If this is the condition that you experience, you should not rush to see a doctor. Multitude stay at home so that your risk of contracting the disease (including COVID-19) can be minimized.


Conversely, if the complaint still does not improve for a long time, our advice, check yourself back to the nearest dentist to be given appropriate treatment. If deemed necessary, the doctor will be able to direct you to undergo blood tests, and other supporting tests.


Hope this helps ...
