dental care


Question by  dhandapani (-1)

How do I make the swelling in my gums under a tooth cap go away?

I have a permanent tooth cap, and the gum surrounding the tooth is swollen. How can I fix this?

Use a warm water salt rinse a few times a day to help with the swelling. Also, take some ibprofin to help.

This swelling can be a sign of infection in the gums and around the tooth cap. Brush thoroughly in case it is severe gingivitis. But see a dentist as soon as possible.

That means that you have an infection in your gum. Typically, after dental surgery, the dentist will prescribe Penicillin to stave off infection until the mouth's natural healing properties take effect. You would want to go to your dentist and let him know so that he can x-ray the area and determine the extent of the infection.
