Description

Gums problems include bleeding during and after tooth brushing, gum inflammation causing red and swollen gums, persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth, receding gums, formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums, loose or shifting teeth. These could occur due to infection, poor dental hygiene, cancer and other medical conditions.

When to See a Doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Fever

Possible Causes

  • Herpes simplex

    Painful blisters due to infection by the herpes simplex virus. This condition can occur on the lips (cold sores) or groin (genital herpes). After the first bout of infection, the virus lies dormant in the body. If the immune system is weakened e.g. due to lack of sleep, the virus can reactivate.
