I got diagnosed with acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis about 3 days ago. The dentist did a professional clean, and prescribed some mouthwash with chlorhexidine.
The pain in my gums has since continued to persist (not as bad but still consistent), and my lymph nodes are both swollen now. (Previously, only 1 was slightly swollen).
Is this normal given the deep clean likely irritated all of the sensitive tissue, or should I be going back to follow up with further treatment options.
I’m coming to reddit first because I can’t afford dental work (unemployed), and was only able to see this dentist as an emergency funded appointment.
