Hello doctor,

After trying to fix my general teeth and gums, I have managed to get rid of the yellow plaque after a few days. However, after brushing gums excessively, ulcers have appeared, and my gums have swollen slightly and are very painful. I was wondering how to fix them and how long it will take?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Actually, you have gum infection (gingivitis). It is common and curable. First thing if there is any hard deposit then you should see your dentist for a professional dental cleaning. Maintain proper oral hygiene like two times brushing, flossing at least once a day, do not use any type of tobacco or smoking, change your toothbrush every two months and use proper brushing technique. These instructions help you to maintain healthy gum and teeth.
