Gums are killing me - what to do?
my gum is swollen on the left upper part my cheeck is puffy and feels like a hard not what is it and what do i do
A dentist needs to examine you. It can be due to several reasons. Swelling means inflammation, but having a hard note can be something different then just gum diseases.
Please visit a dentist and he/she may require a specialist's opinion (periodontist, oral pathology specialist, endodontist).
