Yes and No: Depending on the reason for the gingivitis. If it is from trauma then no. But if it is from an infectious nature then yes. Consider a recent study done in japan found genetically the same bacteria in dogs as their human owners published in "archives of oral biology"(do a google search for kissing dogs gum disease). The ada has published in jada that yes gum disease is contagious.

Yes: Yes you can help with dental swelling by using non steroidal anti inflammatory like ibuprofen. Also temperature can help with swelling cold the first 24 hours after and warm the following 24 hours+. If it gets out of hand call your dentist and they can prescribe antibiotics and steroids if necessary. Hope this helps, johndds.Com.

Energy drinks: Be careful with energy drinks. Some soda has a ph of 2. Some of these energy drinks are even lower. Consider battery acid is a ph of 1. Bathing your teeth with sugar and acid is a cavity disaster waiting to happen. Hope this helps, johndds.Com.
