Tender, bleeding gums, white spots, pustules on roof of mouth, rotting front teeth. Cure?

Im a 24 year old male... In the last week my gums have become very tender, bleeding , have spots that are white or grey... The roof of my mouth has had what feels like sacs that bleed out when i touch them. A couple of my front teeth have even began to get what looks like rotting toward the base. Once again, all these symptoms just showed up and have rapidly increased in the last week

Hello there..there are various reasons for that...please mention if you have elevated spots over your palate( roof of your mouth), is it fluid filled? or is it the just red patches? you have ulcerations all over your oral cavity or is it just the redness you are experiencing on your gums?all these questions will lead to diagnosis of your problem,,,,if they are fluid blisters the management differs...if it is just gum redness with bleed on stimulation the management differs...consult your dental surgeon for clinical examination and management...Clinical examination becomes very important for management of these kind of symptoms....

Dentist Dr. Khushboo Bhatia's  Response
Rather than blindly going for the medications, i suggest you to visit the dentist ASAP and fist get the root cause know as there are many factors leading to gums swelling and tender. Few to be cited are:

improper brushing technique
calculus and plaque deposits
or it can be improper brushing technique etc.
So, start brushing twice daily with proper brushing technique, do flossing daily and use mouthwash gargles and don't forget to visit the dentist...

hi there
thanx for the query
with the symptoms u wrote seems to my belief are symptoms of periodontitis (pyroehhea) which is severe infection of gums and teeth and bone underneath causing dark bluish blakish greyish discolouration on the neck and roots of teeth , bleeding from gums and mobility of teeth.
get a thorough cleaning of gums and teeth by a PERIODONTIST (gums specialist) . and medication required.
