A 19-year-old female asked:

Proper home care: Gingivitis is the inflammation and swelling of the gums preceding any permanent bone loss. If gingivitis is not treated it can lead to periodontal disease which is when bone loss starts to happen. Regular 6 month cleanings at the dentist and proper home care of brushing and flossing should reverse gingivitis. This can be determined by your dentist.

Root Canal: Sorry to hear that you are having this recurring infection. As long as the teeth are not too severely damaged than doing root canals on those teeth will eliminate the infection. After the infection is removed the tooth will need to be restored with a crown.
A male asked:

Visit a Dentist: IF there is pain associated with the pressure then it could indicate an abscessed tooth. An x-ray of the tooth will help the dentist determine what the tooth will need and also check to see if the tooth is loose.
