  • You have not mentioned since when the redness is there and whether it is increasing or not. Normally this sort of redness which is localized can be because of some sort of minor trauma like the injury with the brush while brushing or if you change the tooth brush or it can be because of some injury while eating. These sort of redness normally goes within a week. You can do warm salne rinses for 2 to 3 times a day and take care not to irritate it further . If it does not go then you have to visit a dentist.
