You are probably getting your 12 year molar late, but it could be your wisdom tooth coming in very early.

Visit your dentist. He could give you an irrigating syringe to squirt hydrogen peroxide under the inflamed gum. Occasionally it is necessary to excise some gum around the erupting tooth to eliminate bacterial invasion. Don't worry, it is a simple procedure.

What the above dentist said.

Tell your parents about it and get them to schedule you an appointment for the dentist.
