Sore or swollen gums are often an indicator of gum disease. In other cases, it can signal something less serious, like perhaps food stuck in between teeth. Brushing thoroughly,then flossing and rinsing with mouthwash is one way to deal with this issue.If you believe it is gum disease, you should see a dentist immediately. However, a short-term remedy is to rinse your mouth with warm, salt water and swallow over-the-counter pain relievers.
