  • As a dental hygienist my response to you would be to have a professional dental cleaning. If your already seek professional care on a regular basis then there are some factors associated with swollen gums..Few factors are hormonal, stress and lack of good brushing and flossing at home. Tartar is a stone like substance that forms under the gumline..in return causes swelling, and bleeding gums...Professional cleanings are very important and some people form tartar faster than others so perhaps more frequent hygiene is required for you.
