  • Swelling of gums behind the tooth is either because of gum disease or due to decayed tooth. For this you have to go to dentist who will find out the cause by doing clinical examination and xrays. According to cause the treatment will be done. If it is due to gum problem then deep scaling or gums surgery is done and if it is due to decayed tooth then you will mostly likely need Root Canal Treatment and then crown on that tooth. Till then you should maintain good oral hygiene and do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day.
