Iam 55 years old. For the last 3 days I have pain in the right jaw with inflamed gums and the pain going down upto right side in throat making swallowing of saliva also very difficult. Can not open my mouth enough to eat using a spoon. Only sipping of liquids is possible. Please suggest.

Its most probably due to infected tooth in your right jaw or some gingival disease. You need to visit dentist immediately for proper treatment.

Sir, your tooth has gone severe damage. It is otherwise called chronic irreversible pulpitis. Your local dentist could do treatment for the tooth. Please contact your nearest dentist.
