My nani is using complete dentures since 15-20 yrs. Now she is suffering from upper left maxillary posterior swollen gums along with pain. Please suggest what to do. She is 75 years old.

Discontinue denture for 5 days. Gargle with warm saline water three times a day. Consult your dentist to sort out the reason for the same.
