A 19-year-old male asked:

Gums along right side of my top teeth are swollen, canker sore is almost done healing on this side right now, what is this? anything serious?

Unlikely: It may take up to a week for the gum inflammation to go down. Be patient. If it still hasn't healed a week or more after the canker has gone, see your dentist.
