While this is a start, this is not a complete list of causes for swollen gums. Take your child to the dentist in order to best determine why his or her gums are swollen.
There are several things you can do to help your child’s swollen gums improve if he or she cannot see a dentist right away.
Though you may find a home remedy that helps with the immediate symptoms, it’s important to remember that swelling is the mouth’s reaction to what could be a bigger issue.
