My gums have been swollen for several months now. They are not red but light in color. I have little pain and no bleeding.
However I have found my self clenching my teeth often during this time and thought the sweeling is due to trama. I went to the dentist for an exam and it appears I don't have any absessed teeth or gingivitis. She thought it also may be due to trama. I was given antibiotics and will return. The swelling is still present. I have been trying to stop clenching my teeth with a lot of success. If this is trama how long will it take for swelling to go down? Or could this be something else?
