Inflammation...: ... and probably an infection. Please see a local dentist for an examination and treatment options for your dental issues.

Red bumps: At 21 it may be wisdom teeth trying to erupt, or it may be infections (abscesses) of your 12 year molars. In either case you will require professional care. Your history of episodic pain and your teeth feeling loose may indicate infection. Sounds like it has been too long sin ce your last professional examination nation. Please see a Dentist immediately.
