You have probably developed Pharyngitis - this is inflammation of the back of the throat. The pain may radiate to the gums and also to the lower throat.
Please take the following steps:
- Gargle with warm saline water thrice daily.
- Suck at a hard sweet or toffee - the swallowing action causes the muscles of the throat to contract and relax , opening up the tube.
- Take an anti-inflammatory medicines like Motrin 1 tablet thrice daily for at least 3 days.

Yes, it can start the at the gums as Gingivitis. But the pain down the neck and near the right ear indicates that you have developed pharyngitis.
Please take the steps above - it will help clear up the inflammation.

The tissues between the teeth is quite swollen and it is difficult to identify if something is stuck there . But the extension of the pain to the throat =does indicate that you have a radiating infection and inflammation.
Please gargle with Chlorhexidene solution - it is a oral antiseptic. Swish the liquid sharply around the teeth so that anything lodged in between can be pushed out.
Also take Motrin thrice daily.
Do not touch the area with anything.
If the pain and swelling continues after 24 hours, please consult a dentist.
You are welcome.
