In brief: Depends on cause

Is the swelling due to periodontitis or a necrotic nerve in one of your teeth? Antibiotics will treat the symptoms, but definitive dental care will treat the problem. Please call a local dentist for an appointment.

In brief: See a dentist ASAP

Bleeding and swollen gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, advanced gum disease.
Untreated gingivitis can lead to the tooth loss and other health problems. See your dentist ASAP because the sooner you treat it the better the outcome.
