In brief: See your dentist

Swollen gums are usually caused by build up of plaque and tarter. There are other issues that can cause swelling, such as an abscessed tooth and certain medical conditions, the best course of action is to see your dentist for a proper diagnosis, if you do have gum disease, they will recommend the proper treatment, as well as tell you how what you need to do at home.
