Inflammation: Gum inflammation may be due to gum disease9bacterial infection), tooth abscess (bacterial infection), allergies, systemic disease, and other causes. Please see your General Dentist ASAP for an examination and treatment or referral. Please also make sure to have regular twice yearly dental examinations and professional cleanings.
