dental care


Question by  Wotan (30)

What would cause the area where my wisdom teeth were to swell?

It's been 20 years since they were taken out.

Maybe you are getting an infection or a cist of some kind. You defiantly need to go to a dentist.

Well, if that area is swelling, this could be because you are not flossing properly. Or also your gums could be weakened due to another problem or it could be hereditary. Another thing is that you may have cavities in that area. You should go to the dentist and consult.

It's possible that you bit on something that irritated your gums in the back. Try to rinse with salt water.

This probably has nothing to do with wisdom teeth. You probably have a minor infection or inflammation going on in that area.
