Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Swollen gum and pain in teeth can be due to gum infection or can also be due to sinus related infection if the pain is in upper gums only..

By this age all her teeth must have erupted, so it does not probably seems to be the cause..

So my suggestion is to consult a Paediatric dentist and get her evaluated..

An x ray can be done to confirm the cause for swollen gum..

A course of antibiotic and pain relievers along with topical application of lidocaine gel can help in improvement..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
