Common Questions and Answers about Swollen gums remedy


Avatar f tn Any home remedies for swollen gums? Besides the obvious brush your teeth (which hasn't helped) On a non pregnancy related note, can someone please explain to me what a regular coffee is?? Is it one milk one sugar? It's been driving me nuts all day.
Avatar m tn Hello, Such sore swollen gums can be due to gingivitis,infections,malnutrition and vitamin C deficiency,pregnancy or sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash . Take vitamin C supplements for some days and change your toothpaste brand and avoid using mouthwashes if your swollen gums are caused by sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash.Also have good oral hygiene. If the symptoms persist then pls consult a dentist and get gingivitis ruled out. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I have swollen lips ans swollen gums and had a fever a few days ago. Has anyone had these problems before?
Avatar n tn The first few days i noticed my gum front bottom between the two teeth was swollen. After two days I noticed a white head (pimple) - a small one. Now there nothing there but the gum feels a little sensitive. There's no pain but I'm just worried its not just a pimple or something more. I brush almost all the time might have forgotten a couple of time. I hope its not an infection or gum disease or anything. I read about gum boil but my pimple was leaking out anything ts was just a white head.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn I was eating strawberries the other day and I believe that a small seed got stuck in my gums behind my right wisdom tooth on the bottom. This has happened before with popcorn, but the offending particles easily came out and the swelling went down. Now, whatever is stuck there is pretty well stuck. My gum is swollen pretty badly and it's starting to get pretty painful.
Avatar n tn Johns Wort (herbal supplement alternative to antidepressant since it uplifts mood) and garlic supplements. Garlic is the best natural remedy available since it is antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal. I took the highest dosage of garlic available (odorless 1000 mg) and the highest dosage of St. Johns Wort (with "hypericin"). I did not notice any change in smell the first 3-4 days, and then the smell started getting fainter and fainter.
Avatar f tn Are red swollen gums linked to autoimmune disease? I herd autoimmune diseases can cause tissue damage.
Avatar m tn Feed Your Cold This Half Cent Make-at-Home Remedy It turns out that at least one of those old wive’s tales that you’ve probably heard, and most likely dismissed, most of your life may in fact be true. I suffered with chronic strep throat as a kid. I spent half of every winter battling the strep bug and the other half fending off the common cold.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I also am experiencing the end of my tongue being somewhat irritated, numb, and mapped. Some mornings, I wake up with swollen gums behind my front teeth; wondering if my tongue is causing that while I sleep! Anybody here having tongue issues along with lips and eyes? I've tried all kinds of topical things on my lips and eyes, but nothing seems to really work. This week, I'm trying the apple cider vinegar, as I've heard from other sources that this is really good.
Avatar n tn I first get sores in my mouth, then my lips are tingly, then chapped, swollen, and blistelike, happening over several days. The last time I had this, it lasted over 3 weeks. I went to the Dr. and he gave me medicine for Herpes virus (cold sores). I am now experiencing the same symptons, and the medicine the Dr. gave me doesn't seem to be helping.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
Avatar n tn Since yesterday I've had a large swollen bump on the labia majora..it's very painful, it hurts to walk or sit. I've been putting warm cloth on it and it seemed to help with the swelling but it's still really painful. I don't really want to go to the doctor because I just don't have the money right now, and I feel like it would be a waste if it's something that I can take care of on my own. Anyone else ever experienced this before? What can I do to ease the pain?
Avatar m tn The last few days especially, the pain is unbearable unless i continue to swish cold water on my swollen gums in that region, but then the pain comes back full force in about 2 minutes. I tried washing my mouth out with warm salt water, and all that did was increase the pain so much that I was shaking. My gums on the upper right of my mouth are red and swollen. Is there any home remedy or anything else you can suggest to make me a little bit more comfortable?
Avatar f tn My 3 month old is teething his bottom gums r swollen. So my sons god mother decided to put orajel which I thought it was okay but then I researched and found all this bad stuff and now I'm worried this was his first try will anything happened to him???
Avatar f tn No known allergies, oh and I didn't bite my lip, and there's no sore anywhere, just redness around my gums and painful swollen bottom lip (I put the hydrocortisone on the left only.
Avatar n tn The tooth that is the root canal and the gum around that tooth is very swollen and so painful that most of the right side of my mouth is painful. I am unable to relieve this pain with traditional pain meds (aleve, ibuprofen). I am unable to see the dentist until next week. Is there anything, preferably a natural remedy, that can help until I get to the dentist?
778497 tn?1320557679 The easiest way to get an idea of this at home is by checking for swelling or redness of the gums and if his glands are swollen. Typically for me, the first glands to swell are the Submandibular gland located right under both sides of the jaw. If you notice any of these, go to your doctor and tell him that you think you may have an infection and get the antibiotics. That, alone, can cause the full head pain. When it comes to pain killers, what kinds is he taking?
Avatar n tn I found it all to be very painful and the dentist had to use large amounts of meds to numb my gums, not unusual for me, for some reason I metabolize the meds quickly.) The did the right side first, both upper and lower, then I went back for the left side a week later and last Tuesday (3rd week) they did the fillings on the right side. After the treatments, I experienced sensativity of all my teeth on and off...
Avatar f tn My mouth is textbook herpes. I have it all on my lips AND sores in my mouth including swollen gums (gingivitis). There is NO way the tests will be negative. No, I haven't been diagnosed with Whitlow but given the fact that I am sure I have herpes, and I (unknowingly) used my hands to apply creams to my vagina. But, I am going to the doctor again today. For those who have had Whitlow....as things are healing, are your hands/fingers super itchy???
Avatar f tn Long-term deficiency can lead to a calcium deficiency, alcoholic hallucinations, unusual face and eye movement, alopecia (baldness), swollen gums, and lesions of the gums. The symptoms of magnesium deficiency are identical with many of the symptoms of thyroid disease, especially hyperthyroidism. A slight deficiency and you will notice slight depression and lack of well-being.
Avatar n tn It is not sensitive to heat or cold but the pain is spreading into my jaw and my face is slightly swollen on that side. I have called the dentist again and he said just to give it a few days, the pain should subside. I am constantly on Orajel, Advil, and Tylenol or else I am in pain. Is this normal?
1925262 tn?1322877632 ) Over the past few months my gum seems to have swollen, in the images, the gum on the right hand side at the top is most notable. The swollen area is not sensitive, but is rock hard when touched. You can just about compare both sides of the mouth in the second picture to notice the right is far more swollen. I hardly ever drink alcohol (I avoid alcoholic mouthwash too), and I do not eat sweet foods often either.
Avatar m tn I have irritation on my upper gums, my mouth is constantly salivating, and my lips are a little swollen. I don't know of any allergies that I had prior to this happening. It is very uncomfortable and the liquid that is salivating into my mouth is making me sick and is usually very salty. This has been going on for months. Any suggestions? My dentist is very reputable, but tells me he has never heard of this issue.
Avatar n tn The gum also appears slightly swollen, but I'm not quite sure on this one. Is this normal after 10 days? The pain is made worse by eating, but I can apply pressure on the tooth OK. I would go back to my dentist, but he is currently on holidays for 5 weeks. A friend told me to put oil of cloves on the gum, and to my amazement the pain disappeared in under a minute.
Avatar n tn We both would like to thank you for the baking soda remedy. My daughter and I have been praying for a solution to her toothache problem. She went to the dentist and she needs ortho-surgery and the only one in Tampa refuses to remove the tooth. So we're very grateful for you and your help to give both of us some much needed peace tonight!
215461 tn?1331866365 He took a biopsy. My whole mouth is swollen so sore now, but mainly I am freaking out. Lichen planus is terrible, but what if it's cancer or something? I don't even know how to handle this. The stress is making me go hyper again, and I'm starting to have panic attacks. I just don't understand why all this is happening to me right now. The hashi's crisis and thyroid removal next month was enough =(. I just wanted to vent my frustrations!
