Dentist, Endodontics 's  Response
Hi, Swollen gums is not an emergency unless it is bleeding profusely. Please visit a Dental Surgeon who will determine the cause of the condition. Swollen gums could be due to Calculus or deposits on teeth, reaction to medication, deficiency of Vitamin C, Bleeding disorders or many other causes. The cause needs to be identified and treated. You may need scaling, use of a gum astringent, a Periodontic Flap Surgery depending upon the condition and cause.
