Gums sore and swollen
This is most often caused by plaque and gum disease or food getting stuck between your teeth. In the case of food getting stuck try gently brushing and flossing.
In the case of gum disease you should see a dentist as soon as possible. For the short term you can consider using over the counter pain relievers and a warm salt water rinse.
