In brief: Most common cause

is a bacteria from a tooth cavity can cause a dental abscess, or infection of the mouth.
Always see your dentist because he/she is experts on all types of mouth problems, so your dentist will be able to treat the condition and to prevent future complications.

In brief: Poor oral hygiene

A thorough teeth cleaning will help determine if the cause is periodontal or otherwise! a decaying tooth can also be infected!
