Swollen veins between the front teeth, swollen gums due to huge braces. How can I fix it quickly?

The vein between my two front teeth is swollen. All of my gums are a little swollen due to mediocre dental hugeness and huge braces that make it hard to brush. My main problem, however, is the Vientiane thing. Its red and sort of puffy, and although it does not hurt, it is very unsightly. What remedies are there to fix it relatively quickly??

Your problem is due to braces. There is lot of calculus deposition that makes the gums to swell and get inflamed. Please use an orthodontic brush and a plaque removing mouthwash always till you have the braces on. For immediate relief, please use a gum astringent eg. Dentakind astringent. This will reduce the puffiness and bleeding of the gums. Please get scaling done for better results. Take care!
