Hi swelling of the gums is a common problem, wherein the gums may protrude or bulge out and appear red instead of their normal pink. This can cause the gums to become irritated, sensitive and even painful. The gums also may bleed more easily when brushing your teeth.
Gum swelling can be due to a number of issues, among which gingivitis and infection are most common.
Treatment plan differs depending on the cause.
Swelling in gums are due to infection either due to tooth decay or accumulation of plaque and calculus or some injury. Get your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. Meantime you can take some antibiotics and painkillers for relief. Do salt water gargling.
