I need to have braces to fix my crooked teeth but the dentist I went to see said he can not start orthodontic services until my gums are treated first. I know I have really red and swollen gums, I did not get good dental care when I was a child and I doing my best as adult to get my teeth back into shape.
So how do you treat swollen gums faster? My gums are very noticeable swollen, and often bleed when I brush my teeth. The Orthodontic dentist said that I would need to see a Periodontist dentist to get gum treated. How can I help to clear up this gum issue so they they stop bleeding and become less swollen.? I can not afford to see both an Orthodontic and a Periodontic dentist.
