Hello,

Read your query soreness in gums can be due to infection in gums it can be due to habit induced use of tobacco containing products ,poor oral hygiene , may be due to deposition of plaque and calculus in subgingival region pf gums , drug induced .
Dont worry firstly I will suggest you to quit habit of chewing tobacco containing products , maintain proper oral hygiene , do warm saline rinses two - three times a day , you can apply gum paint on gums like stolin gum paint . Consult dentist for complete oral prophylaxis .

Hope this will help you.
