Causes of swollen gums:

How to help swollen gums:

  • Gum disease
    Lingering food debris and bacteria on the teeth can cause decay and inflammation. If you’ve neglected thorough brushing and flossing, gingivitis may be the cause. Gingivitis can progress to more serious forms of gum disease, resulting in bone loss and loose teeth.
  • Abscess
    Untreated cavities cause bacteria and infection to spread through the teeth (known as abscesses). Your emergency dentist can clean out the infection and restore your teeth with root canal treatment.
  • Poor nutrition
    Fruit and vegetables play an important role in oral health. Missing out on your five a day may result in nutrient deficiencies - Vitamin C, folic acid, and riboflavin - which cause swollen gums.
  • Pregnancy
    Hormonal changes during pregnancy can alter the way the body responds to bacteria, allowing plaque to easily build up on the gums. It’s important to attend regular dental checkups during pregnancy, especially during the second trimester.
  • Tobacco and alcohol
    Smoking and drinking increase the chance of gum disease as they weaken the immune system. Tobacco and alcohol also slow down healing and should be avoided.
  • Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Good dental hygiene will eradicate swelling caused by gingivitis.
  • Rinse your mouth with saltwater to soothe gum pain.
  • Eat your fruits and vegetables for optimal nutrition and oral health.
  • Visit your dentist for a checkup. Your dentist will determine the cause of the swelling, and quickly help you restore your oral health.
