I had a rhino/septoplasty about 5 weeks ago and my upper gums have been swollen and painful ever since. My teeth ache a little as well. Is this normal?
Is It Normal for my Gums to Be Swollen One Month After Rhinoplasty?

Swollen Gums After Rhinoplasty
The gums are generally not affected by rhinoplasty, so this seems unusual. I would recommend seeing the surgeon who performed the surgery to ensure there is no other issue, such as an infection, if an intra-oral approach was taken for osteotomies.
Best of luck to you!
