How can i heal this gum/tooth pain, are there any remedies I can purchase from the store?

Heal? no

Stringio
I wish it were that easy, and not so great for us dentists if all patients had to do was put a magic elixir on their tooth or gums to solve all dental problems. You will need to see a dentist who can determine what is wrong and what treatment is necessary. It sounds like it might be time for a thorough general dental checkup and cleaning. Hope you see a physician annually for checkups as well.

How can warm salt water heal gums?

Crenation

Crenation causes bacterial cells to contract after exposure to a hypertonic solution, due to the loss of water through osmosis. This causes the bacterial cells to die, thereby decreasing bacterial counts and the toxins they release. The warm water also stimulates blood flow and cleanses the tissues.

Can it take longer for gums to heal after teeth extraction if you have gum disease ?

It can...

Gum disease typically occurs when gum tissue is aggravated by excessive plaque and bacteria combined with poor oral hygiene. When gum disease is not managed, this can result in the delayed healing of surgical areas, not to mention an increased risk of infection. My best advise is to see your dentist and hygienist before any oral surgery.

Bit gum with my tooth and now i have a small blood blister. what can i do to make this heal fast?

Warm salt rinses

Blood
The blister will need to heal on it's own, but if it is a bit swollen in the area, warm salt water rinses several times a day will help it along.

how can i help myself to heal my gum after a molar extraction. still in lots of pain after 5 days.?

Visit your surgeon

Bone
5 days after a third molar extraction you should still be sore, but starting to feel better. If this is the case continue following your post treatment instructions. Remember, you had a surgery involving sensitive bone and oral tissue. If you are in more pain, you may have a complication and should followup with your surgeon.

It will get better

It will get better....be more gientle in the cut area, keep your teeth clean...it will heal in 7-10 days like any injury or sore in the mouth. No additional remedy necessary to hasten healing. Warm salt ( pinch of ) rinsing may be soothing, 4-5 times a day.

A week ago, my gums behind and in front of my 2 front teeth, swelled up, then became a tough, liquidy blister. What can I do to help heal them?

See a dentist.

See your dentist as soon as possible. The longer you wait the more chances you are going to loose your teeth. Abscess is usually a sign of an infected tooth that needs to be treated ASAP.

My wisdom teeth are growing in on the top row & are running against my gum making it hurt & raw. What can I do to make it easier and heal the gum?

Rinse & see dentist

Dentists
The most that you can do is rinse with some warm salt water (teaspoon of salt in glass of warm water) a few times a day. You should see your dentist to determine if there is enough room in your mouth for the wisdom teeth and if they are coming in straight or need to be removed. If that is the case, waiting will only prolong the discomfort.

Dr. Tarek Hamid answered:

Can dry socket occur 2 months after your gums heal very nicely? Achy & itchy throat, ear and jaw ache, eye twitch, neck pops, same side as extractions

Rarly

Adenoidectomy
If the gums heal nicely after an extraction the chance of getting a dry socket is very slim if the gums closes before the rest of the socket. But those symptoms are indicating an infection somewhere in that side that is not necessarily related to the extraction .
