My right side of lower gum is hurting & the gum is a bit swollen.

hi, my right side of lower gum is hurting. I have had root taken out from one of my teeth 3 yrs ago, and since then the gum in front of that tooth (without root) hurts when I press it and it doesnt feel right/comfortable. I feel like I want to just dig the whole tooth out myself. the gum is a bit swollen.

Dentist Dr. Srividya Rao Vasista's  Response
Hello There,
You need to see a dentist ASAP. Get an X-Ray taken to check for any problems(most likely a root remnant). Meanwhile use Dologel CT/dentogel/mucopain ointment to reduce the discomfort & swelling.
Thanks & Takecare
