A dental examination is necessary for determining the accurate cause of your symptoms. Crooked teeth can lead to periodontal disease and premature wear of your enamel. Tooth decay and abscess formation may cause pain in the gums. It is best to get examined and initiate treatment as soon as possible. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
