    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My gums swollen
    Dman21 posted:
    My gums in the back bottom right side of my mouth is swollen and hurting I have already had my wisdom teeth removed I believe two years ago. And this swelling and pain has been going on for the past two days now. I am not sure what this is so please provide me with any advice.

    It could be due to lack of vitamin C, bad diet or gingivitis. You need to visit a periodontist and get it checked. If it is gingivitis, then you will need proper treatment followed by good oral care to ensure that you do not face the problem again.
