Check if prolonged: Swollen gum and sensitive tooth could be temporary if the gum had to be pushed or cut for a deep into gum filling. A tooth could be sore right after filling just like if you had a surgery, the cut could be sore. The swollen gum should heal in a week or two and the sensitive tooth could take a few days to three months to recover. If not, you may need a root canal. Check with your dentist.See 1 more doctor answer
