What do I do with the swelling. My gum swollened at the back of the molar and it's not wisdom teeth that cause it because I removed last year.

In brief: Have it examined

It may be food impaction, periodontal pocketing, or even an abscess from a necrotic nerve.
Once the cause is determined, your local dentist will determine the proper course of care. Feel better soon.

In brief: Gingival abscess

I suspect that you have an abscess in the mouth, more specifically in the gum. See your dentist for evaluation and treatment.
