Why can't you go to the dentist right now? Are you self medicating? Antibiotics only prolong the inevitable... a dental visit. Figure out a way to get an appointment ASAP.

What should I do? My gums on the top right side of my mouth in one spot is swollen and bright red and painful. What can I do for the pain

See dentist

Teeth
There are many potential causes of this so I recommend seeing a dentist. If it is a gum or tooth abscess, you need treatment. There are may other potential problem, so you need a diagnosis to treat this unless it is something simple like 'you stabbed yourself with a fork' or 'burned yourself on hot pizza'.

Had a cold this past weekend and now it's gone but a painful lump appeared behind my gums by the front upper teeth. What is it? I have a picture.

Painful lump

1-call_dentist
The painful lump is likely a sore incisive papilla (if located exactly behind and in-between your two upper front teeth) or a gum or tooth infection. This can only be determined by seeing a local dentist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, if required.

Painful white spots on gums, is it herpes?

Sore gums

Canker_sore
This may be an infection called herpetic stomatitis, which is an infection from the herpes simplex virus. Or, it may be multiple aphthous ulcers (canker sores). You should have this examined by your dentist, but in either case, they should heal spontaneously in 7-10 days. Your dentist can suggest some remedies to control the pain.

Dr. Ragan Faler answered:

Painful gums where wisdom teeth used to be/ WHY?

Infection or....

Cavity
If you are an older patient you may have residual periodontal defects that need treatment. Impacted teeth can impinge on the nerve causing a neurotaxis, delayed healing or altered sensation. Sharp bone under the gum keeps it sore. Make sure no tooth is left behind or cavity around it.Worst case is neuroma formation but highly unlikely. It can take months for normal feeling to return. See the OMS.

How common is it for somebody to get painful gums?

Floss

Flossing
Sore gums are most commonly from gingivitis but can be a sign of worse periodontal disease. Dentists emphasize daily flossing and regular cleanings in order to prevent these problems. Probably the best thing is to see your dentist

Dr. Yo-El S. Ju answered:

Do doctors see a lot of patients with painful gums?

Dentists

Doctors
Dentists are trained to evaluate teeth and gums. However if gums are painful as a side effect of certain medications, it would be helpful to discuss with the doctor who prescribed the medication.
