Dentist 's  Response
Hi,
You have an impacted third molar tooth. The condition is known as pericoronitis. It is an inflammation of the gums around the tooth. You have to get an OPG xray taken and your dentist can identify the actual position of the tooth. If the tooth is angulated it will have to be removed surgically and the problem will get resolved. Use salt water gargle 4-5 times a day and consult a Oral and Maxillo-facial surgeon at the earliest.

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, the pain and swelling may be due to impacted third molar.Another possibility is that because of the impacted third molar, the adjacent molar may have got carious (since there is some food lodgement) leading to the pain and swelling. Please go for a dental OPG to know the cause. Please go for an extraction of the third molar and root canal treatment for the second molar if it is infected. Take care!
