These severe diseases of gums are called periodontitis. The main cause of such cases is the plaque. Plaque is formed on the teeth due to ignorance. If you do not keep proper oral hygiene, plaques develop on your teeth. These are bacteria which would attack your gums and cause inflammation. This results in swollen, red, and bleeding gums. In people who are suffering from gingivitis, it may not be painful but for others it may cause severe pain. Gingivitis in its earlier stage can be cured if treated well in time.

You may be sent for further imaging, such as a CT scan or MRI, depending on your symptoms. A full physical with diagnostic tests may be obtained to help make sure your general health is not contributing to your tooth pain.  The physician may then ask that you see the dentist or another dental specialist depending on the findings.
