Swollen gum of first molar tooth
I accidentally chewed on a piece of a stone in rice yesterday and hurt my first molar tooth both on the lower and upper jaw. Now it's difficult to chew anything, be it soft or hard and the gum has swollen up. Brushing is painful too. Even if both my upper jaw teeth and lower jaw teeth touch each other it's paining. Could anyone please suggest what medicines i can take to reduce the pain and the infection? It's terrible!

Sorry to hear that. The symptoms that you describe indicate that there maybe a deeper issue requiring X-ray check. You need to visit a dentist to assess if the tooth is sound and if no fracture has occurred. The gum inflammation -if unrelated-will subside. But if there is more trauma(if revealed by x-ray) it might require more treatment
Next Steps
visit the nearest prosthodontist for a check up
