Swollen Gums Around Tooth - Is This a WARNING Sign?

You have swollen gums around tooth and are wondering how this happened and what to do next.

It's a bit alarming because the swelling is probably tender and you can't stop touching it with your tongue. That's what happened to me some years back.

If you have recently had some dental work done - this could be the reason for the swelling. However, if not, you would be best advised to consider the following questions:

  1. Are you experiencing any bleeding when you brush your teeth ?
