Can gum inflammation cause mild indigestion?

I've had some gum swelling/inflammation and I believe the pus drained out because the gum swelling is gone there is no more pain, but I've been having mild indigestion ever since, it's been 4 to 6 weeks now. Was it a gum infection that drained into my stomach? If it is an infection how do you treat it?
