I have red painful incisive papilla. I don t smoke or drink

Hi, my papilla behind the front two teeth is red but not swollen. However, it is still sore after nearly 4 weeks. It looks like there is a tiny hole (spot) on it but that s all, which I think may have been caused after catching a crisp there. I don t smoke or drink. Any ideas?

There may be inflammation of the gums causing gingivitis due to possible trauma, infection, plaque. You can take a pain killer after meal for relief. Avoid chips, hard and hot food till you see the Dentist. Drink plenty of water. Keep good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth carefully.
