Swollen Gums FAQs

Font : A-A+

Frequently asked questions about Swollen Gums

1. Can a swollen gum cause any discomfort?

It is usually associated with a mild constant gnawing pain, or may cause no pain at all. The swelling may hamper the normal brushing, resulting in increased accumulation of bacteria and hence causing more inflammation and destruction of gum tissue.

do i need antibiotics for swollen gums and face and neck should i go to dentist

aksin

My wife is 7 months pregnant and she has swollen teeth. We are not sure whether to go to a dentist or just sit on it during the pregnancy period. As the dental plan in Canada is not covered by the Government, the dentists in Canada tend to make a big deal out of nothing, as they get paid more. So we prefer not to go to the dentist if we do not have to.
Can anyone suggest what we should do at this moment?
