Evaluation: Gum pain could indicate ginigivitis or periodontitis. Your local dentist will need to take a look, and together with radiographs, can determine what treatment you may need.

See a dentist ASAP: If you experience pain or notice puffy bleeding gums when brushing, it may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. Gingivitis is a serious problem, which should be diagnosed professionally by a dentist. Do not delay,
