In brief: See your dentist

The gum tissue around the temp is inflamed and infected.
See your dentist for temporary crown adjustment.

In brief: Inflammation

The gum tissue around that tooth may be inflamed.
Flossing should keep it clean and eventually alleviate the sensitivity. Brush twice a day, too.
