Hi doctor,

I had a cut in the gum after having some food. Later, I gargled with Listerine and it worsens the condition with swelling. I am having bleeding gums while brushing. I am 35 years old and I am diabetic. Please do the needful.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is called localized peridontitis, which occur sometimes if there was food impaction between the two teeth or some prolonged infection due to plaque and calculus deposition.
  • You should use warm saline gargle thrice a day for a week.
  • Use an oral anesthetic gel to feel free from pain and heal faster.
