My teeth are not perfectly aligned as the way they used to be. The crack in my jaw made a bit of a pocket between two teeth (after healing) that likes to catch food. So I have to be careful to clean it.
Now my lower gum line is red and irritated for seemingly no reason. Just across the row of the middle front teeth, the gums are all inflamed. Would antibiotics help? Could the steel plate through my lower jaw have anything to do with this?
