Gums Swollen with with little bumps around the teeth, advanced stage gingivitis? I've had gingivitis since i was a young. However since I've gotten older and once I got braces a began to take care of my teeth properly. Does anyone have any idea what this is? I do remember a while ago the dentist telling me to ease up on how hard I brush. Maybe related to that?

Good day

The gums look a bit swollen in the second photo. It is important to remember that swollen gums could be because of various reasons. It could be plaque induced, and in such a case you will need a proper cleaning. It might also be related to certain medical conditions, medications used, as well as certain hormone fluctuations.
It is important to see your dentist, so that the cause can be identified.
