Some of the medicines that you may consume on a regular basis comes with inevitable side effects, including swelling of gums. Gums can overgrow to an extent that covers a major portion of the teeth, following the consumption of medicines against seizures (commonly called as ‘FITS’), high blood pressure and those given for organ transplant patients. Poor oral hygiene can add to this effect and push you towards severe gum disease.
A dentist can help you detect this problem & request the physician for substitution of medicines whenever possible. Frequent dental visits and meticulous oral hygiene becomes mandatory sometimes to treat this issue. The professional dental help will also help resolve all the associated gum diseases in such conditions.
