Gabapentin and gums as well as teeth

Regarding the teeth issue and gums using gabapentin I had sore gum on my left side of the top right next to a tooth that is now killing me since I weaned off gabapentin which I was using for seizures. I was on 2400 mg and that was taking away many pains that are coming back now. I thought the sore gums was due to the medication now I'm finding out that it's because of an infected tooth.

Well that's kind of good😕 you can fix an infected tooth but now a trip to the dentist.

Just found it was nerve damage from a filling that went to close to the nerve? Root canal yesterday. Hope gum pain goes away.
