Pain in lower gums, teeth swollen, gums rotting. What could be the reason?

I have pain in my lower gums and under my bottom front two teeth it is swollen and the gums are like rotting away. There is brown stuff around my two teeth. The area seems to be spreading where the gums are going to way so to speak. Any idea what it could be. I m aware I need to go to the dentist but thought I d check here. Thanks

Welcome to HCM
It seems that there is abscess formation in lower front tooth region.Do you have pus discharge in that region? Was there swelling in associated teeth? All these things need to be known before forming a proper diagnosis.If there is deep caries that has approached pulp then you may need RCT depending on its clinical & radiological condition.
Consult your dentist for proper diagnosis & treatment plan.

hi there
most probably its calculus deposited on inside and outside of your lower front teeth which is cousing gum infection ... its very common in most people due to lack of in office dental cleaning from a dentist. please see your dentist as soon as possible probably u need a good thorough cleaning.. its negligence may lead to periodontitis which ultimately leads to loss of teeth.
