What you need to know about Tooth and Gum Swelling
What causes swollen gums?
Minor swelling could be due to something as simple as food stuck in the gums due to improper brushing or flossing. This food debris can cause inflammation and tooth decay over time. More severe swelling could indicate something more severe, like an infection.
How to reduce gum and tooth swelling?
You can apply a cold compress (such as a cold pack) against the side of your face. This will help reduce swelling and provide tooth pain relief.
