Tooth pain and sensitivity
I've been experiencing persistent tooth pain and sensitivity when eating or drinking hot or cold foods. Additionally, I've noticed some swelling and redness around my gums. Despite regular brushing and flossing, the discomfort persists. Could you please provide guidance on what might be causing these dental issues and recommend the next steps for diagnosis and treatment?

Is the pain generalised or in a specific tooth? Does bleeding occur while brushing? Consult me for proper treatment. I need to know about the above details first.
