it is better if you get an xray of the area and either check with a local dentist or
send the xray and a picture of the area for full diagnosis.
Use warm saline gargle and a painkiller for the time being like brufin or paracetamol.
Can you please be more specific, like whether the whole gum on the left side of the jaw or just around a particular tooth. this will help me to guide you better.
