Brief Answer: Take pain killers and wait a week. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. If you have swollen glands, this would be enough to give you pain when you bite your teeth together. To reduce this take paracetamol and ibuprofen. This will help both pain and inflammation. If this does not settle in a week, I suggest you see your dentist to rule out any problems with your gums or teeth. I hope this is of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBChB FRCA
