In brief: Laser is possible

Utilizing an fda-cleared procedure called lanap is a very innovative and less invasive way to treat swollen gums.
(we are assuming you have some form of gum disease that requires professional attention by a laser trained periodontist.) http://www.Drgums.Com.

In brief: Scaling & hygiene

Scaling and root planing are non surgical therapies for swollen gums ( gingivitis).
Also nutritional counseling, oral hygiene instructions, and laser therapies are very common adjunct treatments. Professional dental treatment & examination is imperative, as this symptom can lead to permanent tooth loss.

In brief: Gum Disease

Try using an antiseptic mouthwash every day, but if you have swollen gums you probably have gum disease.
You should visit a dentist to diagnose this properly. You may require a deep cleaning, called scaling and root planing, by your dentist to treat the problem.
