Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meal. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a "water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line.

Please visit your nearby dentist. Usually deposits around the teeth causes pain and inflammation in gums. You might need cleaning of teeth (scaling and polishing) which might require single or two sittings depending upon the condition.

Irregular brushing technique with worn out tooth brush will certainly cause the gums to swell & bleed. Bleeding is also due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (opg x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. Artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meal. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

Hello dear, tt injection is not required. Just visit to a dentist and get your gums checked, if few clay flakes remnant are present, get it removed by scaling, the gums will regain to its healthy state.

Dear lybrate-user, if there is swelling and pain in your gums it could be due to tooth or gum infection. In this case I strongly recommend you to visit a dentist immediately, as the infection may spread. The dentist will not only stop the pain but also treat the swelling.

Hello Lybrate customer, you might be suffering from pericoronitis, periapical cyst or granuloma. Better treatment would be given if you consult in person. Right now you can do chlorhexidine mouthwash.

Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your "third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it. Oral & maxillofacial surgeon will need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Adv. Medication, cleaning, root canal treatment or surgical removal procedures for the gum mucosa above the tooth or the tooth itself. Until then apply clove oil. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.
