Thanks for writing to us.
The exact diagnosis can be given only though direct clinical evaluation by a dentist.
If there is periodontal infection of tooth,get deep scaling and root planning done.
Use soft-bristled toothbrush and clean your teeth in back-forth and up-down motion.
Pericoronitis during wisdom tooth eruption also can cause gingivitis.
In such cases,tooth has to be either extracted or flap overlying tooth has to be incised and removed.
If tooth is associated with caries,restoration/root canal treatment has to be done.
Use lukewarm saline and chlorhexidine mouthrinse to gargle.
Take complete course of antibiotics too.
Hope this helps.

Hi user , welcome to health care magic.Thank you for posting . As per your histroy of hard slap and followed by pain next day.There are chances of fracture of tooth . Again to rule out this you need to go for a x ray . X ray can reveal you what is exact cause for your pain. Even in case of wisdom tooth impaction you may get swelling around the pericoranal area. Either way a x ray is needed to rule out. Visit your nearset dentist. Hope my answer will help. Thank you . Dr.leeladevi, bangalore.
