In brief: Normal

The eruption of this 12 years old molar usually causes this problem. It may get worse needing surgical removal of the gum covering it.
But if you could treat this condition with mouth rinses like salty look warm water, or with Chlorhexidine 4 times a day, or soothing gel, this could be temporary and the tooth will erupt normaly. For pain, tyleno.
