Q.

Swallon Gums

My back gums get swallon now and then especially when I chew. What is the cure of that? I once consulted the dentist so I was adviced to operate the gums or to remove the teeth. Is there any treatment except operation

No, you most likely have a pericoronitis (infection associated with the wisdom teeth). It will recur continuously until the teeth are removed.
