Gums are swollen, they bleed, and hurt a lot after Braces and dental cleaning?

I got my braces off almost a week ago, and immediately after got a dental cleaning. The dentist said that my gums were going to bleed and hurt for a maximum of a week but then they should be fine. However, it's been a week already and the bleeding and pain has gone nothing but worse. At first it was only when I brushed, but now they hurt all day. I didn't worry at first because the Dr. said it'd be normal, but I just can't stand the pain now. I brush my teeth three times a day and floss once.
