  • Apply some oral anlagesic antiseptic gel over the gums for 2-3 days, twice or thrice daily. Also use betadine gargles for 2-3 days. It will subside but if the problem persists beyond 3-4 days than visit a dentist. Also use soft bristles tooth brush and brush very gently for couple of days keeping in mind the proper brushing technique.
