Sudden gum disease


Hi All

New to this forum. Have just had the shock of chronic gum disease. Came on suddenly - bit of bleeding gums and then spotted space where gum used to be!!! Saw dentist who said possible ANUG and sent me off with antiseptic mouthwash. Really annoyed since this happened less than a month after check up when all was fine!

Now got real pain and swollen gums and horrid taste in mouth.

Any advice from fellow sufferers?
