My teeth don't hurt but I have tried brushing my teeth and rinsing my mouth with salt water but nothing has helped. Do i need to se a doctor? What is it most likely?
If one never had swollen gums after taking Diltiazem Hydrochloride Extended-release Capsules USP for years and then suddenly has swollen gums (no redness or infection) could the Diltiazem suddenly cause this after getting a "deep cleaning" of the teeth, or 'probing for pocket depths' at a dentist?
But I remember my dentist said to gargle warm salt water for like three minutes after brushing or something.
it's been swollen for so long and i went to the dentist and i'm taking a Cream called daktarin and gargling with salt water and it's been swollen for so long. I uploaded a picture so you can see..The left was taken 3 weeks ago and the right was today..Sorry for making this so long,i just wanted to be clear..I plan to see my orthodontist but he's not in the country and i can't go at this very moment...So my question is..
There's no pain in or around the crown or the swollen gums, little discomfort, just a little swollen area about the size of a small pea, that's covering about half of the tooth with the crown. As far as I know it wasn't brought on by eating hot food. I've tried flossing in case there was food or a popcorn shell or something stuck there, but I can't feel anything, and nothing flossed out. It bleeds a lot when I brush my teeth, but is fine otherwise.
) it can aggravate the situation straight away, and the gums are swollen and painful for a while. I find gargling with salt water helpful, till the next time, but will discuss with my dentist again, as it doesn't seem to be trapped food at all, but the impact of chewing a hard substance. Do you find that chewing makes it worse?
Friday everything was fine no discomfort but come Saturday I woke up to intense pain my front tooth hurt a lot it affected my brushing my teeth and eating. I decided to rinse my mouth with warm salt water I thought it was getting better because Sunday I was able to eat without much pain and before I went to bed everything seemed better, but I woke up this morning to swollen gums and a painful front tooth.
He has me or his dad check to see if we see any spots he missed. He rinses with salt water to help with the swelling.
I brush, floss, and use mouth wash twice a day. There is no food stuck there. I even tried rinsing out w/ salt water three times a day, but it didnt seem to work. The area that is sore seems to have a white layer on top, nothing huge. throughout the day its ok, not as bad as in the morning. Any ideas?
sometimes warm salt water rinses can help more than expensive over the counter meds. you do need to go to the dentist as quickly as possible because you need a cleaning and antibiotic to clear up the infection. if its more serious you may need additional procedures.
Warm salt water is always a good home remedy, but have a dentist diagnose the problem. It does not sound serious but have it checked out.
it also hurt so bad i could hardly see, but not the tooth itself, just my gums. i started rinsing with salt water every 2 hours. that helped with the pain & made a bit of the redness go away, but then my gums became pale with the redness surrounding them. when i woke up this morning my lymph nodes were both pretty swollen & my gums were still discoloured in that one spot so i put another teabag in. at first it hurt like the dickens, but now it just itches.
A part of my gums is swollen and red. There are black specks on it. I don't know what it is. It's located beside my front teeth behind them. I tried looking it up but all i got was sexual diseases such as herpes. I have never had intercourses so it can't be that. What is going on?
I had to gargle warm water with a tablespoon of salt every night to strengthen up my gums again, and it worked. You should give it a try.
Gravity boots or yoga are better than a chiropracter for putting your spine back inline if thats the problem. An aspirin sized amount of calcium powder rubbed on the gums will provide very rapid pain control. Too much at one time will give you headache. Rinse mouth with warm water with teaspoon salt in it or clean seawater if you can get it. Oregano tea either cold or hot can take of infection. Oregano oil is also available. Chose this before taking antibiotics.
For the next day or two try to avoid your gums when using your toothbrush, it won't cause any harm. You can also add a little salt to some warm water and rinse your mouth, this will help your gums and get rid of any food you may have missed. You really want this irritation to go away, because while theye're irritated, they may have some swelling, and food can get trapped in between your swollen gums and this would be the beginning of gingivitis. Let me know how you are doing!
Hi, Try that salt water thing. Make the water as hot as you can stand it and salt the water til it tastes sort of like the ocean. Swish around the area that feels like something is in the gum. The salt helps to reduce swelling. Ice on the outside of the face will help, too. If you can take ibuprofen, that will also reduce any inflammation around the gum. When you floss, do it GENTLY. If you irritate your gum anything in there will not come out.
I was told to rinse with warm water and salt and to massage the gum. I was also told that it would take about a week to heal. After a week my gums were still swollen and painful.... I then called my dentist and he said that it was normal and sometimes it takes more than a week to heal and not to worry. Well, it is now two weeks after the procedure. Some days it looks like it's healing and other days it's swollen to the touch. The tooth that was originally acessed looks worse.
The area of my gums behind my molar is very swollen and a bit squishy. The pain has also moved down to my left tonsil and it is swollen and hurts when I touch it form the outside. What is it most likely?
I sent her a spin brush, floss and salt (to make salt water rinse). I googled bleeding gums and saw it at the top of the list of symptoms for leukemia along with bloody noses, frequent infections so my mind is jumping to this. Very stressful with her being away so I don't know what to do. Does this sound like something I need to have her go to the health center asap?
Hi, My right lower back gum, behind my wisdom tooth has been swollen for about 4 days now. It started bleeding on the 4th day. I have been gargling with warm salt water and mouthwash, but it doesn't seem to be helping. The pharmacist prescribed Cotrimoxazole DS tablets, but it has not helped either. It pains a lot! I have not been able to eat any food because it is extremely painful when i swallow. Can you please tell me how i can remedy this? Thanks!
Rinsing my mouth with diluted hydrogen peroxide or warm salt water only makes it less noticeable temporarily but never makes it go away. Does anybody have any suggestions on what to do or what's causing the discomfort? I'm paranoid that my gums are receding or that I'm in the beginning stages of gum disease. If it helps I'm 22.
This is where the dead cells collect. Gargle with warm salt water. do not use alcohol to gargle. It has been found that alcohol used to gargle that far back in the throat can cause cancer. Only use rinses like Lysterine to rinse your mouth only. And, I had the elevated bile levels in my blood test also. Do you have any abdominal pain? Write me and let me know. I think we both have a virus. Not mono.
I'm presently taking amoxicillin and rinsing with salt/water. If anyone could chime in and let me know their thoughts, opinions, or suggestions, I would most greatly appreciate it. Thank you kindly in advance.
I am in my 60's and have only just started to have either a swollen face or, on the last two occasions, a swollen tongue, which all started in September. The first time I had a swollen tongue was 4 weeks ago and I ended up in hospital. I had already taken Piriton but it didn't help. At the hospital they gave me Prednisolone which worked very quickly and I was packed off home with another 2 days supply.
Second immediate action is to try relieving pain, abscesses, and infection with salt water, calcium, oregano, oil, onion juice, and cabbage.
I noticed at this time that my tonsils were huge (to a point where food particles would get trapped inside of them.) My doctor told me to gargle with salt water and to just wait and see if the symptoms will get any better. In addition to gargling, I had taken penicillin (which I got from a friend) to try to ease the symptoms; however, it only solved the problem temporarily. The tonsils decreased in size and food particles no longer got trapped inside of them.
First I'd like to say that it's pretty humbling to not even have 1 red sheckle to go to the Doctor. I have been diagnosed Hep-C for the last 15 years or so. The last 4/5 yrs. or so I have not even seen a doctor,ages. My liver has had pain in the past as well as the present, i know i know, it's not the liver, it''s the lining of the liver streching from the swelling. My last biop was about 5 years agos and the dr couldn't believe how health my liver was from the labs.
As for the swelling, the antibiotics and time will take care of it. If theres a fistula (lil gum boil), sometimes warm salt water will help pull the pus out of the abscess. Otherwise, your dentist can perform an incision and drainage but I wouldn't recommend that route at all. The root canal was done and everything should be fine now. Good luck with hygiene school! Maybe I'll see you at some ADA functions. Best wishes.
This tooth seems fine but shortly after the gums on the lower teeth almost directly under crown location became swollen and painful This seems too much of a coincidence not to be related to the upper crown procedure. Can anybody shed any light on what may be causing swollen gums on lower row? Is it possible the dentist used excessive force while supporting his fingers to do crown? Thanks.
