Doctor insights on:
Gums Are Sore After Extraction
See an oral surgeon: Or the dentist. Pain and swelling following dental extraction is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery, after that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. If pain persists or worsens, it may require attention and you should call your dentist or oral surgeon for follow up appointment.See 1 more doctor answer
Sore gums: The crown may be too big and not seal the margins (where the tooth meets the crown). This can allow bacteria under the crown and cause irritation to the gums. Or there can be recurrent decay or bacteria under the gums, that can be caused by not flossing or brushing enough or properly. These are just 2 examples, xrays and exam will be needed.See 2 more doctor answers
I had a deep clean 1 week ago. My gums are sore, red, and itchy. Is that normal? I was fine before it.
Not fine: Your gums were not "fine" before the procedure, just asymptomatic. You needed the deep cleaning, which is a surgical procedure, because you had gum disease. You are now healing from that surgery. If you have concerns, return to the treating General Dentist or Specialist Periodontist who did the surgical procedure for a reevaluation.See 2 more doctor answers
Yep: Syphillis is one std that causes sores. They are called chancres. They can be located anywhere in the mouth. Go see a doctor and a round of antibiotics could clear up the whole problem. Just don't have any physical contact with anyone until you are cleared. Not a nice "gift" to give to others.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: The likelihood is very very very very low.
Without: Without a clinical exam you have not provided enough information to hazard a guess as to what your problem is. The first impression is that you might be brushing too aggressively in that area or that you are clenching you teeth for extended periods of time. You need to schedule an exam with you dentist to get to the bottom of the problem and to be given treatment recommendations.See 3 more doctor answers

Sore or painful gums may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. This is a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist. See your dentist for evaluation.
