Sore Gums

Gums sore and swollen

Sore and swollen gums are most often caused by gum disease and plaque. It could also be because food is stuck in your teeth; in this situation, gently brush and floss your teeth.

If you are suffering from gum disease it’s important to see a doctor right away. Short term solutions include rinsing your mouth with warm, salt water and using over-the-counter pain relievers.
