Im 17 year-old female, my gums swelled up in my mouth at the end of jaw or after the premolars of one end. It is paining like hell I can not swallow my own saliva it hurts a lot. It's vry difficult to open my mouth. please give a solution.
Gum swelling can be due to decayed (infected teeth) or newly erupting teeth (considering your age) or it can be due to gum problem. It is important to know the reason for the swelling before giving the treatment. Medicines will only give you temporary relief
so I suggest you to consult a dentist.
Gum swelling can be due to dirty teeth, hormonal changes, eruption of new teeth etc.
For that you need to consult dentist and take treatment according to your need.
If swallowing is difficult then it can be due to tonsillitis also.
Hope you get well soon.
