What is the treatment for sore in back of mouth after teeth cleaning?

Yes, I had a teeth cleaning two days ago. The Hygienist was rough while scaling around my gum line that she pricked my gum near #21 tooth and had position the Saliva Ejector in my mouth while cleaning my teeth. Now the back of mouth and has a sore from the vacuum. What to do?

Hello,
It looks like that the hygienist has done an improper scaling because of which your gums have now become sore. You apply a topical ointment named mucopain or pansoral gel and even a gum paint which will relieve your symptoms.
But still i think once you should visit the dentist and explain him the problem as in future it never happen.
Thank you
