Nasal mask

I have been using my cpap for about 4 years and in May I had my tonsils, adenoids, and uvula removed and my very deviated setum was straightened. When I replaced my mask last week I was able to go to a nasal mask. The first couple days I had a bloody nose in the morning but increasing my humidifier took care of that. But the past few mornings I have noticed my gums are swollen on the upper jaw when I get up, it disappears within a couple hours. Does anyone know if this is normal? Will it go stop doing this in time? Can it cause permanent gum damage?
