| | A part of my gums is swollen..
Hi.. a few weeks ago, I got fillings in like 4 of my teeth. All seemed good for a while, but then I got this EXTREMELY bad toothache.. I couldn't even sleep, the side of my face and head where my tooth was was just throbbing with a lot of pain. Anway.. I didn't go to the dentist (bad, I know) and after taking painkillers and some other pill for a few days, the toothaches went away. But then my gums at the bottom of that tooth that was aching like hell started to get swollen. It still is, and it only hurts when I put some pressure on it. A few days ago, I looked at it in the mirror, and that part of my gums looked like a buble! Okay, I know, it's disgusting.. I know I should go to the dentist, but well, it's kinda too expensive for us, so yeah. But I will surely go soon. Just please, if you have any idea what it is I described and why it happened, please tell me! Thanks a lot. Oh and I don't think it's Gingivitis, I had Gingivitis before (I have sensitive teeth..).
