Hello there everyone! I'm afraid I need some advice. First, I have really bad teeth. It's my own fault, I'm forgetful about brushing. I've tried doing little things that might help remind me, but I just can never think of it. Anyway, yesterday one of my back gums was swollen a little bit, but this has happened before and has gone away no problems so I assumed it would do the same. I woke up this morning and the swelling had increased. I lightly pressed on it, and lo and behold some blood and pus came out. At least, I'm assuming it was pus. It was white/cream colored and milky looking. I know the obvious answer is to go to the dentist, but I know there's a lot wrong with my teeth and I don't have insurance at the moment. I won't be getting insurance for at least two months either. So please, help give me peace of mind, what do you think this is?
