Swollen gums
A very tiny pieces of chicken got stuck between my two upper left incisors 5 days back. I removed it (I thought it's removed) but now I have swollen gums surrounding that area, specially the upper palate. I thought it would be fine by itself but it's swelling more. What do I do?

Press the area with your finger and check if you can feel anything stuck in your gums. Use mouthwash and warm salt water gargles 2/3 times a day. Use orasep gel 2/3 times a day.

I think you have pricked the tissue there and they have inflamed,kindly try removing the irritant or visit a nearby dentist. Once the irritant is removed ,the upper palate region will be just fine.
Next Steps
warm saline rinses.
