Swollen gums

Question:

Hello
I have a boy of 13 years where his gums are swollen.
He has no evil in it but synsmæssigt it doesn't look pretty.
He has had it for many years and we have always been told of dentistry, that it will disappear if we push the (forsigttigt) on it. But nothing has helped.
What can we do to remedy it

Answer:

Dear Jan,

If the gums are raised in general, it is typically a sign of gingivitis. This is due to a lack of oral hygiene. I suspect that the dentist has recommended to you is that you should brush your teeth better and incl. the gums.

If your son improves his oral hygiene, should the problem disappear by itself.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
