Visit a dentist: Swollen gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. Untreated gingivitis can advance to periodontitis and can eventually lead to the gap between the teeth, tooth loss and other health problems.

What to do if I have a fever, sore throat, and really swollen gums, but no bleeding. What could this be?
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.See 2 more doctor answers

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!See 2 more doctor answers

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.
Professional cleanin: Brush twice/day, floss or water pik on a daily basis and have your teeth professionally cleaned.See 4 more doctor answers
