Gum pain: You can try warm salt water rinses, 3% hydrogen peroxide rinses (diluted 1:1 with water), otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache, orajel, and cross your fingers. These methods will not solve the problem, but only mask it until you get proper professional treatment.
