  • Localised infection in the gum as in your case is usually due to some trauma or irritation of the gums. Trauma can be due to biting on some hard thing or due to direct blow on that tooth. The irritation can be because of food impaction like eating pop corns causing the irritation. Now for treatment, you can do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and can apply some good gum paint available otc. Donot bite from that tooth and maintain very good oral hygiene. If it does not heal in 3-4 days then you have to visit a dentist. For more info on gum problem remedies you can read this article....
