Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

this could be due to an allergic reaction

or an autoimmune disorder where your body is making antibodies against itself.

is this happening to you or a family member?

any new medications?

I have had this ongoing for YEARS. My dental health otherwise if excellent. I take great care with my oral care. We have lots of allergens in the air here right now. As far as autoimmune issues, I do have a latent polymyalgia rheumatic disorder. It has been in remission since 2006. David
