Ive noticed last night that my gums on the left side are feeling like pressure is being put on them. Does that mean the gum is tightening up? Ive been keeping up with my oral hygiene. Here is a picture of the specific side...does it look swollen or just tightening?

They look like they are healing! I think if they were swollen they would look red! If they start hurting maybe contact dentist? Well done they are looking much better x

What would be good is if you pull your lip out like that when you're brushing the teeth/gums down there, then you can see what you're doing and can get the brush head at a decent angle into the area.

If you've got quite a tight musculature round the bottom front teeth it can be very awkward to clean them properly.

Thank you for the advice, Gordon!
