The closed office environment is the main factor which induces dental diseases. Using air conditioning for a long time will cause bacteria to breed. People in this closed conditioning environment are very susceptible to infection with upper respiratory diseases. Then the possibility of swollen and sore gum will be markedly increased caused by the upper respiratory diseases.


Smoking, drinking coffee and strong tea due to higher pressure and intensive work are all important causes of swollen and sore gums.
