Local inflammation of the gum can be because of trauma from the brush, any hard food impingement or local burn from hot beverages or sometime due to local pus collection in the gum due to a condition known as LATERAL PERIODONTAL ABSCESS. better get it checked by a dentist.  Oral examination once in three months is necessary and cleaning once in 3-6 months
Next Steps
Don't do any self medication like application of clove or clove oil,  rush to your dentist ASAP
Health Tips
Meanwhile you can rinse your mouth by warm saline water...

hello, as i can make out from your symptoms you have loaclized gum inflammation around one tooth. If there is no associated cavity in that tooth and its only gum infection , then u can do warm water and salt rinses it will help in settling down infection. Later on you can consult your dentist and get check up and cleaning done. No, gums dnt grow on there own. You might gum surgery for that.

Redness in relation to a specific teeth can be due to food impaction in gingival crevice, trauma caused by brushing, infections in the relative area. I hope that there is no growth in your gums and I suspect it to be inflammation. Because with the details provided these alone could be the basic underlying causes. Cleaning once in 6 months is always good and since you had cleaning done before one year better have another professional cleaning.
Next Steps
Best suggestion is to visit your dentist as early as possible. Sort out the problem and  eliminate the cause. Because with the details provided its difficult to provide a concrete treatment plan.
Health Tips
Do not prefer self medications, just by starting to brush every time after food consumption is not going to solve it. So get to a professional soon and clear your problem. Get back your happy healthy smiles.
