Dentist 's  Response
I read your problem,as you gave the detail it seems that this is because low white blood cells count,because in case of low white blood cells count immunity gets lower and the body is more prone to infections and in the oral mucous membrane become necrosed and gums and supporting structures destroy very rapidly.
so i will suggest you please go to your physician as soon as possible and go for complete check up including complete blood count.
and please take a proper treatment.after the treatment of this problem,visit to your dentist and take a proper dental treatment accordingly including scaling.
nothing to get worried,you will recover very soon.
Take care

the problems are associated with low white blood cell count.
this is known as agranulocytosis.the wbc count will be below 2000cells/mm cube.all the systems in body are infected.there is rapid destruction of gingiva and supporting structures.
there will be infection in oral cavity,git,genitourinary tract,respiratory tract and skin.
the lesions appear as ragged necrotic ulcers covered by a grey or black membrane.
there won't be any inflammatory cell infiltration around the periphery of lesions.
visit a physician at the earliest.
after curing the disease,visit your dentist and get thorough cleaning of teeth and get thorough check up of oral cavity.
hope you get well soon.
