My front and left bottom gums are aching bad, mostly between my teeth. It feels like my gums and teeth are hurting there. What is wrong with them?

In brief: Most likely

periodontal disease.
See a dentist asap to have it properly diagnosed and treated. It will not go away on its own. This is a serious infection.
