I am a invisalign patient and while flossing about 3-4 days ago the floss string snapped and cut my gums. At first it was a little sore and i just thought it would go away. Today it has been about 4-5 days since the incident and my gums are swollen where the cut happened there is no visible cuts or bleeding but the gums are swollen and a different color pink than the rest. The swelled area seems to get worse when i remove my invisalign treys and the swelled area has covered half of one of my molars. My throat seems to b hurting as well today and it does hurt when i rub my tongue against it and my tooth is sore as well.
Is this a serious problem?
should i continue flossing?
what can i do to make it better? because i cant seem to get in contact with my dentist
