  • There can be various reasons for swollen gums in front teeth. It can be due to trauma which can be there due to hard brushing or if you bite on something hard or it can also be infection due to poor oral hygiene or food impaction. If it is just localised in the front two teeth and not generalised then you can do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day and do massage of gums with gum paint available otc. If it does not subside within a day or two then you have to schedule an appointment with dentist. He will find out cause and if it is due to some infection or trauma then he may prescribe meds and it due to poor oral hygiene and the cleaning of teeth will be done.
