Swollen gum at the back

I’m having swollen gum at the back of my left side of teeth, it’s painful that I can’t open my mouth fully at all, I can’t eat well due to that. Any advice please .. I don’t wanna go see dentist . I scared they will ask me to pluck my tooth I’m currently at 19weeks

If gums are swollen.. you need to brush more frequently, floss and use a mouthwash.. but swollen gums are not usually painful.. if it hurts it may be something more than swollen gums. In that case, you have to see a dentist soon before it gets worse and require more invasive intervention.
