Bone/gum swelling around the back teeth only on right side

Hello I’m Karl,age 22. 2 years I have been suffering with swollen gums. The bone of my cheekbone and bottom jaw feels inflamed and warm to the touch but doesn’t look noticeable when looking at me. My cartilage of my thyroid feels inflamed also. I have had my bottom back tooth taken out on the right side and feel like my bite is misaligned but when I relax my jaw I feel like I’m clenching only on that right side . I’m also still getting clicking in my jaw after having Botox 2 months ago. I feel in myself it’s effecting the joints around the inflamed teeth (skull/neck/shoulder)and need the teeth extracted.

Causes I think it is:
1. misaligned bite putting pressure on the back teeth.
2. Pericoronitis (doubtable with the amount of that time it has been).
3. (Worst case) mouth cancer thanks to Google.

Good day

Judging from the photos, it does seem like you have a large overbite, which might be an indication of an orthodontic issue. Have you ever considered an evaluation by an orthodontist?
