Hi, a gum injury will heal on its own in 2-3 days. But sometimes there are calculus deposits which make it impossible and actually make the gums inflamed and more prone to injuries. So make sure the tooth doesn't have calculus. You can apply Stolin gum astringent to facilitate healing. Pl call me on 9848813162 in case you have further queries. Take care!
