In brief: See your dentist
Swollen sore gums is usually due to gingivitis or a foreign body (food) in the pocket of the gums.
Also, certain medications, such as dilantin, can also cause gum swelling. Assuming regular brushing and flossing are currently being done, best to see your dentist to find the cause and implement a treatment plan.
