Suggest remedy for pain in the gums
Infection,trauma,dental work as possible causes....
I understand your concern.
1. Have you noted any bump on that particular part of skin?
2. In case of previous gum infection, the skin might remain a bit sensitive for a few more days until full recover.
3. If you have a recent history of face trauma or dental work, it is normal to have a pain when press at respective area.
I advise to:
- apply a good oral hygiene
- avoid biting hard foods
- be careful when chewing up foods
- take medications (antibiotics if any) as prescribed by your doctor;
- regular follow ups with your dentist
As per your description, it seems to be inflammed gingiva. As long as there is no severe infection, abscess or fistula, there is nothing to worry about losing your teeth. Avoid foods/drinks that would irritate gingiva.
Viral infection can also cause swollen gingiva. Keep a good oral hygiene.
Hope it was of help!
It won't fall off, it's just inflamed
Thank you for following up.
Although you feel your teeth like falling off, it is because it is swollen and inflamed. It will not fall off. Just avoid biting hard foods.
It will subside in few days.
All the best!
X-ray advised;antibiotics&anti-inflammatory medications to take...
Hi back my dear,
Can you send a picture of the swollen and painful teeth?
In such cases, oral antibiotics can help together with anti-inflammatory medications apart oral hygiene and local care.
Discuss it further with your dentist or physician about these options.
X-ray of the teeth can be done to determine at what extent damages have occurred to teeth root and if there is risk to lose it?
can send at following email address

Do not worry, if dentist said your teeth won't fall off in 2 weeks time, they won't.
Just follow the advice as given earlier.
Looking forward to have the photo in.
Thank you for providing the requested photo .
I have noted the swollen gingiva. It is really inflamed. I still think you need to take oral antibiotics and to avoid chewing up hard foods and apply gum soothing gel locally.
However, I still think you will not lose your teeth although such irritation.
Yes, it won't fall unless you put a lot of pressure on it.
can wait for few more days until see hygienist. Or, you can consult another dentist for immediate treatment as advised earlier.
local and oral medications
After re - evaluation, a xray might be advised.
Local and oral anti inflammatory medications. Other specific medications will be prescibed after physical examination or after reviewing xray result.
The hygienist will:
- run a thorough examination of your gums
- if tartar is present, the hygienist will evaluate at what extent it has caused damages to your teeth
- depending on what he/she will find, a more specific management will be advised. If plaques and tartars are present will try to remove them and clean your teeth.
Hope it helped!
You will not gong to lose your front tooth although it seems wobbly...
You won't lose it. It seems wobbly because the gums there are inflammed.
Do not use hard/hot foods. Instead, cold foods/drinks and cool gum's gel can help.
