Gum disease is often to blame for sore and swollen gums, though this type of discomfort can also be caused by food getting stuck in your teeth. If you think this is the case, carefully brush and floss your teeth.
See a doctor immediately if you suffer from gum disease. If you do have gum disease, a short-term remedy is to rinse your mouth with warm, salt water and take over-the-counter pain relievers.
