Gums sore and swollen
This is usually due to an infection from plaque and gum disease or from food getting stuck in between teeth. You can try to gently brush and floss the area to dislodge any food debris. Another option is to use warm salt water rinses. You must get to a dentist for help but can use pain relievers as for tooth pain.
