One possibility of sore gums is acidity with gastric reflux. This can throw acid into the mouth and cause a kind of chemical burn that acts as an irritant. At times a ragged end of tooth, infection, low iron or Vit B12, impacted wisdom tooth, Vit C deficiency, infection of gums etc also acts as a source to irritation. It can also be an oral fungal infection. Please do not scrape with brush or anything as this will also act as an irritant. The other possibility is some food allergy. Hence this should be separately investigated. Common allergies are those to gluten, lactose, citrus fruits, egg, sea food, preservatives etc. Herpes infection too should be ruled out. It can also be TMJ disorder. Massaging the sore points on face, moist heat or cold packs on the face, vitamin supplements, or biofeedback are useful for some people. Discuss this with an ENT specialist and dentist. As you can see that there are many possibilities. Confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. What you can do is discuss these with ENT and dentist and rule them out one by one.
