Swollen gum around one tooth



Junior member

I am extremely stressed about a swollen gum above one my upper tooth. It bleeds when I floss. However, it is not painful. I have not been to the dentist in years. I do floss daily. The rest of my gums do not bleed. Im just having an issue in one area. Any suggestions??
You won't get any sensible answers over the internet. Go and get it checked out by a dentist.
Thank you. I finally went to the dentist. My gums are inflamed and I have lost a lot of bone. The doctor’s plan is to do deep cleaning.
Good for you getting it checked out before it was too late. 👍
