My gums are clean but it's swollen and red. It bleeds when I brush and sometimes when I wake up. It doesn't pain. I did consulted to a Dentist and he said it's Gingivitis. He just cleaned my teeth and gums and also he said my gums are clean and he don't see any reason for the cause of Gingivitis. Please help.
Hi lybrate-user, let me start by telling you that gums swell in response to debris stuck between your teeth and gums. If you have undergone scaling of teeth then the debris must have been cleaned. If for some reason the debris were left behind or you have not been told about maintenance part post scaling, then wat happens is that food debris gets lodged again and the swollen gums donot get a chance to heal. So kindly consult your dentist for the same and find out about maintenance of teeth and gums after scaling and i'm sure you will be satisfied by the results post maintenance.

Hello, get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily. Maintain proper brushing technique. Floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.
