Stretch, exercise: Back soreness is very common and most often caused by strain on the back muscles. It is a good idea to stretch your back and do back exercises. If there is persistent numbness or pain that does not go away in a few days then it is best to see your doctor to rule out more serious causes of back pain, like disc disease and nerve compression.

Brush, rinse, floss: Brush and keep them clean, floss them gently and try rinsing with warm salt water in that area specifically. Rinse for a minute or so or as long as you can. This should help it go away. If the swelling is not going away you need to see your dentist to have it checked out. Good luck.
