Q.

Painful Gums

Hi Doc,
For over 2 weeks now I have had painful gums but only around my 3 back teeth. I brush and floss and rinse with mouth wash but still the pain carries on. It is a bit swollen but mostly just tender and sore. Is it an infection or is something else wrong?

thanks

it is possible na infection but without an examination it is difficult to say.
