Thank you, ***** ***** seen the pictures.
Looks like gum inflammation, I will suggest that you start on Chlorhexidine and saline rinses 4 to 5 times a day, eat or drink cold liquids and semi solid food. Start on an anti-inflammatory like Tylenol, two tablets every 6 to 8 hours for 3 days.
This should subside itself. If it gets bigger or more painful, then it might be getting infected and in that case, oral antibiotics will be required.

Usually happens in response to trauma due to brushing or while eating something that may have been hard, etc. It can also happen if you have bad oral hygiene.
