Gum & Teeth Swelling Care

Does it seem like the pain from your swollen tooth just won’t go away? Swelling of a tooth, mouth and/or jaw is not only a nuisance to try to function with, it’s also often quite painful and could be a sign of a serious dental issue that you want rectified right away.

What is causing my tooth and mouth to swell?

Swelling of the mouth could result from a whole host of issues, including the following:

  • Gum disease
  • Abscessed tooth
  • Trauma to the area
  • Wisdom teeth issues
  • A tooth infection
  • Nutritional deficiencies

If the swelling in your mouth won’t go away or is causing consistent pain, you should have it looked at as soon as possible.

Ways to Prevent Swelling

The best way to avoid swelling in your mouth is to stick to a rigid dental routine. You want to bush your teeth multiple times a day, floss at least once, use mouth wash and see the dentist every six months. Nevertheless, dental issues and swelling of the mouth can happen to anyone, even those with unimpeachable dental hygiene. If it happens to you, it’s best to have a dentist look at it right away, especially if the swelling is being caused by an infection and you need antibiotics to treat it.
