I have swollen gums (bleeding), sore throat, canker sore under my tongue, in gums (group of multiple sores), in my cheeks and also in my lips.

2 separate problems: 1. Bleeding gums can be a sign that you already have, gum disease and need to see a dentist. 2. Canker sore, nothing cures canker sores or prevents recurrence. However, many over the counter antiseptic and pain-relief medications can ameliorate pain, prevent infection and promote healing.

Question my gums are swollen bleeding and painful

Question my gums are swollen bleeding and painful

Infection: Most probably cause of symptoms you describe is gum infection, Periodontal Disease. Very small chance that it could be caused or exacerbated by other problems such as diabetes, leukemia, etc. You need hands-on treatment immediately. Please see a General Dentist or preferably a gum specialist, a Periodontist, for appropriate diagnosis and care.

Could you tell me what are some at home treatments for swollen and bleeding gums?

Could you tell me what are some at home treatments for swollen and bleeding gums?

Many things: First I would recommend you see a dentist to find out why they are bleeding and see what the recommended treatment is. At home, regular brushing 2-3x/day, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash will help. It usually takes 2-3 weeks of regular maintenance to notice a change in the gums. A water irrigation device like a waterpik is also very helpful. But first, see a dentist!

I have sores on the gum behind the top row of teeth, I also have strep throat with meds. Are these sores related and should I go back to the doctor? The sores are small and yellow and my gums are swollen, they were bleeding earlier.

I have sores on the gum behind the top row of teeth, I also have strep throat with meds. Are these sores related and should I go back to the doctor? The sores are small and yellow and my gums are swollen, they were bleeding earlier.

Get it checked: Hi Austin, these could be ulcers or abscess. These aren't usually related to strep throat. If they aren't getting better with your strep throat antibiotics, I suggest that you go back to your doctor to get it checked as you may need to get it lanced and/or swabbed. You may also need a broader spectrum antibiotics.

I had swollen & bleeding gums 8 months ago. My gums are still swollen but the bleeding started again 2 days ago. Do I have periodontal disease.?

Probably: Periodontal disease is an infection process. It doesn't self heal. You need professional care now, before the infection spreads. Call your Dentist. Referral to a Periodontist (Gum Specialist) may be in order. If you had an infection anywhere else in your body would you wait 8 months and hope for a miracle? Don't wait, call now.
